17th February Ockwells Park and Thrift Wood, Maidenhead
We will be working in Little Thrift Wood, part of the new extension to Ockwells Park in Maidenhead.

The aim is to open up an area of the wood to encourage the already rich ground flora to flourish. Jason has arranged for some of the larger trees to be felled by chainsaw this week. We will be processing the cut wood and possibly coppicing some of the smaller coppice stools.

Ockwells Park is on Ockwells Road, Cox Green, Maidenhead. Meet in the main car park.

SATURDAY 30th March Battlemead Common, Maidenhead
Battlemead Common was bought recently by the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead. It is opposite Cliveden and was previously part of White Place Farm.

A hedge of 4000 whips is being planted parallel to the Thames Path. The WMCV task has been moved to a SATURDAY so that we can join Wild Maidenhead and Wild Cookham and hopefully finish planting the hedge before the end of the hedge planting season. If there is time we will also mulch the hedge.

Battlemead Common is at Map, OS SU 90744 83775, Postcode SL6 8LF

We can’t park at the site (there is a new car park on the A4094 side of the site but it’s a long walk). The nearest place to park is Islet Road at the end of which is a footpath to the Thames Path; turn left at the Thames Path and walk towards Cookham. However parking is limited and you may have to park in one of the neighbouring streets.

Islet Road is here SL6 8LD

14th April Jennett’s Park, Bracknell
We will be removing tree guards and making tree boxes at Jennett’s Park. If you own a sharp knife please bring it for tree guard removal.

Meet at at the carpark near Jennett’s Park Community Centre, Tawny Owl Square, Bracknell, RG12 8EB.

28th April Battlemead Common, Maidenhead
Battlemead Common was bought recently by the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead. It is opposite Cliveden and was previously part of White Place Farm. It stretches east to west from the Thames to the A4094 Lower Cookham Road.

We will be removing tree guards from a hedge about half way across the site and to the north.

Meet in front of the barrier at the new car park off Sutton Road (look out for WMCV arrow). The site doesn’t officially open until July which is why there is no Battlemead Common sign and the car park is locked. If there is no space here park in Sheephouse Road.
