Himalayan Balsam – River Brue

As many of you who walk along the riverbank by Church bridge will have noticed, the Himalayan Balsam from last year’s seeds has become prevalent now that it is flowering. This is despite an earlier cull of the plant. 

On Saturday 24th September it is intended to remove the remaining plants. If anybody can spare an hour of their time, please meet by the benches/seats at the church bridge at 10am. You will need waders and/or decent wellington boots, gloves and a long-sleeved shirt to protect arms from stinging nettles. Obviously, volunteers need to be reasonably fit, and sound footed. For further information please email graham@bruecrew.org or info@bruecrew.org.
