Work Party

Thanks to the volunteers who joined our work party today more of the woodland edging has been cut back and two steel posts have also been installed to protect the entrance to the common

Woodland Edge

Thanks to our small band of volunteers work to control the edge of the woods has been started near the bench by the Coronation trees

Preparing the tools before starting….
Hard at work

Additional Dog Waste Bin

In support of our efforts to eliminate dog waste and in particular the plastic bags that are being left on the common, an additional waste bin has been installed. This is adjacent to the layby at the junction of Lane End Road and Horns Lane. The new bin was installed by the Society but has been adopted by the Council who will take care of emptying it.

Litter Pick

The weather was at last kind to us and we had a good turn out for our Autumn litter pick. So thanks to everyone who helped on Sunday and at other times over the weekend to keep the common and woods clear of litter.

Three of our volunteers ready for work

Also a special thanks to for their support by providing funding for the litter pickers and rings for our volunteers to use.

Clearing the Triangle

Thanks to Wendy Sally and Tim for their hard work clearing a section of the triangle.

Unfortunately there were not enough of us to clear the whole area but the bottom part has been transformed…..

A date to clear the top section will be organised when we hope to see more volunteers helping us to maintain the common.


Thanks to Hughes and Salvidge who supplied the material and equipment, and Wayne who did the work, closure of the access used by the travellers to get on to the common has now been completed.


Thanks to a local resident a large pile of earth now fills the gap that was used by the travellers to access the common.

This will be smoothed over and become a permanent barrier as part of the existing bund.


A special thanks to the small band of local residents who were up early on Thursday Morning clearing rubbish left by the travellers. A fantastic effort and a job well done.

Thanks also to the Council who collected it the same day.


Thanks to the Police , our local Councillors and the Estate the Common has been reclaimed from the travellers who broke in and set up camp last Thursday.

Now we just have to clean up the mess.

Dumped Car

The remains of a burned out car dumped on the edge of the Triangle

If anyone has any information about who is responsible for this please contact the police

Disposing of ‘dog waste’….

Please dispose of dog waste in the bins and not in the bushes…

We appreciate dog owners who pick up after their dog but not when the bags are then thrown in the bushes.  Behind the bench near the Coronation trees there were more than 30 plastic bags of dog mess, hanging in the bushes that our volunteers had to deal with !!
