Kent Wildlife Trust Award

Montefiore Woodland – receives Kent Wildlife Trust “Wild about Gardens” Bronze Award.

Montefiore Woodland was recently awarded the Kent Wildlife Trust (supported by TDC) “Wild about Gardens” Bronze Award.

Dave Welch and Nick Rankin, volunteers from the Friends of Montefiore Woodland, were pleased to attend the presentation on Tuesday 15th October at the Trinity Resource Centre at Margate. (See attached photo Dave Welch being presented with the award).

Montefiore Woodland held a very successful first work party of the Autumn on Saturday Sept 29th where much was achieved, the wildflower meadow received its inaugural cut and the clippings were removed to ensure low nutrient levels in the soil to suppress coarse grasses. Preparations began to clear the area adjacent to the pathways for November’s Bluebell planting, as well.

The Woodland’s next work party is planned for Wednesday 30th October between 10am – 1pm (weather permitting). Tasks include: wood stacking for chipping, the removal of small shoots from trees and to continue to clear the area alongside the edges of the main path of ground ivy in preparation for next month’s Bluebell bulb planting.

Look forward to seeing you there for as long or as little as you are available!
