Remove Brambles and Small Trees

This month we will return to the corner of Purbrook Gardens to continue removing brambles and dig out some of the smaller sycamore and horse chestnut trees.  Our vision is to transform this neglected space into a wildlife garden with native species hedges and wild flowers.
