Chiltern Forest Golf Club – Monday 28th October 2019
The second event of the Landscape Connections project of Chalk, Cherries and Chairs was delivered on Monday the 28th October at the beautiful Chiltern Forest Golf Club. We must start by thanking the wonderful volunteer contingent from members of the Chiltern Forest Golf Club, as well as staff who supported us by not only physically helping deliver the practical aspect (thank you, Steve!), but by providing some lovely hot chips at lunchtime – not something that happens often for us here at the Chiltern Rangers, a huge thank you for this added bonus!
The day consisted of scrub removal, taking a significant amount of scrub out within a little copse of trees to let more light through and encourage the beautiful orchids that are already on site. Hopefully all this hard work will help encourage more of these beautiful wildflowers to flourish and spread next spring and summer.
Of course, this would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the brilliantly hard-working volunteers who gave up their time to come out and carry out this important work within the Landscape connections project for Chalk, Cherries and Chairs. We salute you and thank you for your efforts - three cheers for our volunteers!
More work parties will be announced over the coming duration of this project so if you would like to come and get involved, give back to the beautiful landscape we live in, meet like-minded people and enjoy the great outdoors, give us a shout – we’d love to meet you! (Did we mention, we will provide the teas/coffee/hot chocolate?!)
