Horley Conservation Group Update

Message below is from the GGP People and Wildlife Officer:

"Many thanks to all those that joined me at Riverside Garden Park on 17 February.  Thanks also to all the volunteers from the Horley Piscatorial Society for joining us on a glorious sunny Saturday.  Between us we re-coppiced some of the small trees around the lake, cleared a small path along one side of the lake, removed some of the submerged logs from previous tree clearance work, cut back near the picnic area and collected 3 black bags full of litter and assorted items.  I think this first joint task worked fairly well and between the two groups we got a lot done, so this is something that I think we can do more of in future, especially where we have a common interest."
