Hare Lane Copse Improvement

For some time the Parish Council had been concerned about the state of a portion of the Parish Field lying next to The Barn House Veterinary Surgery now known as Hare Lane Copse.

This land, which belongs to the Parish Council, had fallen into neglect and has attracted fly-tipping.

Having consulted with the local Tree Warden the Parish Council carried out a modest scheme of works to clear the site of rampant vegetation and rubbish. The intention was to sustain the site as a wildlife haven.

The first phase of this work, involving the clearing of undergrowth and self-seeded trees such as elder and sycamore, was carried out last summer and further work subsequently undertaken to clear the site of rubbish and level it.

Saplings provided by the Woodland Trust were planted in the Spring. Measures are currently being taken to eradicate Giant Hogweed from the area.
