Annual BBQ

Leave a comment


Hello and a good morrow . Yesterday the ConVols had their annual BBQ in the Meadow in the new picnic spot. I want to thank Maria Arnold and for bring the lovely food and for putting so much effort in for the volunteers . We will be having our Halloween do soon and we are always in need of help to set up and make sure the kids are safe, so if you are interested in helping out please let us know. Its coming into the thinning season on the meadow and the ConVols will be cutting down the thin Oaks and Ash then replacing with other native variety’s .We do this not only to increase the verity of trees & plants but to change the shape of the tree canopy into a more bird friendly one. How do we do that ? well its easy birds like us enjoy warm ,bright,sheltered, dry spots to breed and stay in. they are also like us in that they like to feel safe,we do this by making the canopy multi layered using grasses, bushes and small trees .So all we need to do is plant them,this we will do in the coming winter
