Wingrave with Rowsham Wildlife Walk, July 14th 2021

About 30 people turned out on a warm evening to meet Marcus Militello from BBOWT, including Chis Pole from Cheddington who chairs the Community Board Environment sub group for our area (looking for schemes which cross Board boundaries).

We visited the protected verge in Mill Lane, the churchyard, Mount Tabor and the Jubilee/ Anniversary Wood next to Castle Street Farm.

Marcus gave suggestions as to how we might better manage these assets for wildlife.

Afterwards a few of us met to discuss the next steps.

We propose the creation of a group (Wild Wingrave with Rowsham?) that will

  • Undertake some maintenance work like raking the verge after cutting, path maintenance, cutting back some nettles in the wood, and planting up
  • Sponsor talks and other educational activities
  • Undertake surveys of wildlife so we can see trends.

There is a group like this in Weedon and we will contact them to find out how they operate.

We will be in touch for help with clearing the cuttings off the protected verge once it has been strimmed.
