Wickham Avenue saved from flooding by culvert

Wickham Ditch and bridge

After the very heavy rainfall over the past 48 hours, the Wickham Avenue culvert is helping to channel off a huge amount of water and preventing the properties in Wickham Avenue from flooding.

Many thanks to the Nonsuch Voles for digging out the ditch  and culvert under the London Road and Sutton Council for providing the bridge.

 

The Story of Nonsuch

 

Bluebells Nonsuch

Two independent film makers created a documentary series focusing on park life in Nonsuch over the course of one year.  They met up with organisations working within the park as well as exploring the deep history and wildlife that lives on in the park.

This is a lovely Web Site, showing Nonsuch Park off at its best.

Spring is coming to Nonsuch Woodland

Bluebells in Nonsuch woodland

There is nothing more lovely than walking through the woodland in late spring.  The woodland between Nonsuch Park and Cheam Rec, is especially beautiful, after all the hard coppicing work by the Nonsuch Voles, two winters ago.

As the sunlight comes through, dormant seeds are awoken and new plants are discovered.  Spanish Bluebells, Cow Parsley and an Apple Tree all help create some beautiful woodland.

Nonsuch Junior Park Run

Nonsuch Junior Parkrun meet every Sunday at 9:00am outside Nonsuch Mansion House.   They hold a timed 2km run, for youngsters aged 4 -14.

This Sunday they had a whopping 178 runners on Sunday. Well done everybody.

Nonsuch Parkrun is free!  But you do need to register before your first run.  You only ever need to register with Parkrun once.  But don’t forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode with you when you come for a run.

And now they need our help.  Please can you volunteer for just half an hour on a Sunday?  They need some people  to slip on a hi-viz jacket and do a spot of marshalling, in addition to 2 people to act as tail runners and look after the stragglers.

Email their volunteer co-ordiantor on: nonsuch-juniorshelpers@parkrun.com.
