Grass Cutting Regime

A full grass-cutting regime agreed with Bexley Council’s contractors and spread over a three-year cycle is in operation. The entire area of long grass is being cut to a height of around 4″ and one-third of the total grassland surface will be cut each year. Here are some photos of the September 2015 cut.

Site Visits

Regular monthly site visits were made for several years when the volunteers, council officers and contractors reviewed progress and discussed any matters requiring attention. Unfortunately due to the Council’s recent cut backs, regular meetings have been abandoned but the reduced Council staff members occasionally meet with the volunteers when necessary.
