Restoring a Pond in East Wittering
October 15 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
FLOW (Fixing and Linking Our Wetlands) is a Heritage Lottery Funded Project to survey and improve the ditch network of the Manhood Peninsula, to prevent flooding and increase vital habitat for wildlife. FLOW works in the following parishes: Apuldram, Donnington, Earnley, East Wittering, Bracklesham, Hunston, North Mundham, Selsey, Sidlesham, West Wittering, West Itchenor and Birdham.
We will be continuing our work on this large beautiful relic pond on Thursday, 15th October 2020 between 9.30am – 12.30pm. We will be cutting back willow, filling the dead hedge, and installing wetland plants, on this pond with huge wildlife potential.
Volunteers will be allocated disinfected tools at the start of the activity, but if you have substantial gardening tools and would prefer to use your own, please bring them along. This is a muddy site so wellies or waders are advised.
Please bring your own gloves. We will bring cake and hot water, but please bring your own cup, and if you will stay all day please bring a packed lunch. See our full COVID-19 volunteering policy here.
