Conservation work and Litter Clearance
There are two conservation work parties each month. The Shooters Hill Woodlands Work Party, which has been working closely with Greenwich Council since 1994. This meets on the 2nd Saturday of the month. We have also recently started a Weekday Work Party, which meets on the Friday following the other work party.
Both meet in the Oxleas Cafe at 10am, and generally continue working in the woods until about 1-2pm.
The work parties consist of volunteers of all ages and undertake a range of tasks, including - clearance of rhododendron and sycamore, dead-hedging construction, ditch clearing, pond renovation, holly reduction, path maintenance etc. No special
skills or knowledge is required, and we provide gloves and tools. Everyone over the age of 16 is welcome - but expect to get grubby !!!!
Every month we organise a litter clearance from part of the woods. At the moment we meet on a Saturday at 10am, but
we are planning to start a weekday
session too. We provide bags,
gloves and litter picking tools.
It may sound strange, but clearing
litter from the woods is surprisingly
satisfying, and we have removed
literally tons of it!
