Luke, Ellie, Meyrick and I joined the friends of Lyncombe Hill tonight to help out with their management of the area surrounding Alexandra Park. After last week's visit of raking to encourage wildflower growth, some of the local residents had become concerned regarding large piles of cuttings that had recently been cut and piled up, hence it was our job to relocate these piles!

Due to the current heatwave, the cuttings had become particularly dry and dusty which proved to be a challenge for the hay fever and asthma sufferers among us, however thanks to the provision of masks from some of the local volunteers we were able to soldier on.

Big kudos to Luke and Meyrick who were able to see out the full session and refused to be defeated by the hay fever-inducing evening!
