Nonsuch Voles create a new path

Many thanks to the Nonsuch Voles who completed the drainage and path improvements at the Oak Bridge last week,  near the Balancing Pond despite being under attack from horse-flies!

The path up to the bridge should be much drier now and a drainage channel to the main ditch should reduce the amount of water accumulating in the clay soil in this area.

In theory this means the whole area should be less boggy in the winter time.

Sutton Runners donate to Nonsuch Voles

The Nonsuch Voles were very pleased to receive a generous donation from the Sutton Runners. The funds were raised from a recent race event in Nonsuch Park. The money will be used to purchase hundreds of plants and bulbs which will form the centrepiece display in the Mansion House garden.

Here, the chairman Paul Airey receives a cheque from Sutton Runners race director Lorraine Martin. To say thank you, we presented Lorraine with a wooden ornament made by  the Voles.

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.
