This is Roger Hawkins, who is doing such fantastic volunteering work in Warren Farm. He is there from mid April, through to the end of October, pulling out Goldenrod. Now that the meadow has been cut, Roger is out raking the grass and adding it to the enormous piles of grass on the edge of the meadow.
As this is chalk grassland, it needs to be nutrient thin ground We therefore do not want the grass composting down, but remove it to the side of the meadow.
Please come and say hello to Roger and Mike Constable and encourage your dogs not to bark at them, they are doing an incredible job.
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.
A huge thank you to Nonsuch Park Run and Sutton Runners for giving up their Saturday Morning to help pull out Canadian Goldenrod from Warren Farm and create beautiful Meadowland. Almost 100 runners came to help.
The runners said how much they enjoy running in Nonsuch and were really keen to help give back to the park in this way.
A massive pile of Goldenrod was created, which has now gone off to the compost heap.
