1. Plant a double hedge on the west side from the path through the wild area to the top corner and along the cycleway for about 40 yards, using fruiting species such as hawthorn, elder,native plum, blackthorn, hazel and dog rose. This has been suggested by the Trustees of the Parish Charity. Safety would also be inproved by these actions in this corner.
2. Inside the hedge plant ash, hazel, rowan, sycamore, maple etc. at 6ft spacing to create a wood fuel coppice that will also be brilliant for wildlife. Currently the area is mainly dying native plum and blackthorn with little herb layer. Tree guards will be required to stop predation by the local muntjac population.
3. Keep the pathway through the wild area clear by cutting back the brambles and blackthorn hard in the winter with a tidy up in July.
4. Cut down the largest hawthorn tree in the scrubby area to the east once every year or two and control the brambles. This small area is particularly good for Warblers and needs to be kept scrubby and wild.
5. Clear some brambles and put in fruit trees - Cox's OrangePippin. Victoria Plum, Conference Pear etc.
6. Clear a small area at the top of the steps by the stream and grass it down. Plant a Willow and install a bench.
7. Clear two of the small hawthorn trees by the "campsite" to make the area more open and so less likely to be used again!
8. Erect notices at both ends of the path through the wild area explaining what is being planned and giving a contact number for interested parties to volunteer their services.
9. Keep the through path to the east of the wild area free of brambles with a couple of tidy-ups per year.
10. Possible make and place solitary bee boxes in the allotment area.

To achieve this Working Parties will be required to cope with at least one two-hour task per month, either on a Saturday or a Sunday, starting in late October. Will any volunteers please contact the Parish Clerk initially.
