Grass cutting and other maintenance work

The Quarr Local Nature Reserve, Sherborne


The Quarr is Sherborne’s local nature reserve, an area of young woodland, scrub and grassland off the Bristol Road.
Today’s jobs will include cutting back the bramble that is encroaching onto the paths, cutting and raking off the ‘Portland Bank’, brushcutting and raking off areas of the rank vegetation in the wildflower area, tending the shrubs and wildflower plants that we put in last year – and probably much more!
Meet at 8.30am at the meeting point by the Carpenter’s Arms pub, now called the Mermaid again.
We will provide the tools for the work, but please bring your own mug and refreshments, your packed lunch and working gloves with you.
If you need a lift, please contact me in advance of the task (07981.776767 or email┬ánigelspring@yahoo.co.uk) – it might be possible to arrange something.
If you are a chainsaw or brushcutter user, you will need your own PPE and you should have attended a refresher course in the last five years.
