Would you like to come out and help look after Sullington Warren?
Our conservation volunteer group will be meeting to carry out invaluable work around the site to improve habitats and conserve wildlife. We meet at Sullington Warren or Warren Hill at 10.00am have tea and coffee at 11.00 and finish at 12.00 noon.
The work is varied and includes: thinning and planting trees; coppicing; clearing footpaths, tending the heather along with many other interesting tasks. We welcome newcomers and whatever the weather the more the merrier. We supply the tools and safety equipment and the all important tea, coffee and cake!
Please look on our website for ongoing information about work parties and special projects that we undertake from time to time. www.sandgate-conservation.org.uk
We go in to the next phase of our Higher Level Stewardship scheme, in which we will look to expand the heathland element of both Warren Hill and Sullington Warren, and to change the age structure of the heather on Sullington Warren to make it more resilient to environmental threats such as the heather beetle.
We will continue to graze Old Washington Common and the Rough Land with Belted Galloway cattle and with sheep. Via the path network we will create stronger links between Warren Hill and Sullington Warren.
