Reigate Grammar School DofE

Earlswood Common conservation

Leave a comment

20 Bronze DofE pupils worked incredibly hard all day on conservation activities in Earlswood Common.  The Countryside Manager for Reigate Borough Council visited the team and was impressed by their commitment and enthusiasm.  A cold but dry day – ideal for felling invading scrub (mainly alien sycamore – devoid of wildlife) along the Greensand Way (where it runs along a raised embankment hiding a Victorian sewer – piping Reigate’s sewage to the sewage works down the road!).  The pupils were brilliant – on task all day, delightfully enthusiastic and dedicated to the job.  They opened up some good “window views” overlooking the lake and left the place with more diverse habitats for wildlife.  Excellent job folks, very well done!
