Rose Planting

The area of the site running alongside Childwall Lane is often overlooked.

The road still has a “country lane” feel to it and the Friends are keen to improve the hedgerow and habitat along this boundary.

On Sunday 5th March a group of trustees and volunteers met up to plant 120 wild rose plugs (native dog rose, rosa canina from the Woodland Trust) in four spots along the boundary and to tidy the area up by removing litter.

We were pleased to welcome some new volunteers to
the event along with some familiar faces.

Planting wasn’t easy with the ground rock hard and covered with ivy and leaves but the volunteers were not easily put off

It’s amazing what turns up and is dealt with by the volunteers.  Thanks, Pam and David.

Some of the team.

The weather was kind to us and we had an enjoyable afternoon – thanks to everyone for your

The path running parallel to Childwall Lane is quite distinct but narrow, winding and uneven so please take care when using it.
