Bat Walk for 5 May
Dragana has arranged a Bat Walk for Friday 5th May, meeting at 8.30pm on Kings College Road by the Running Track gate entrance. We will be joined by Huma Pearce from the London Wildlife Trust who is a licensed bat handler and has recently been surveying bat species on Pinn Meadows. Families are welcome and bat detectors will be provided.
Ward Budget Grant Approved
Friends of Pinn Meadows have been successful in an application for a Ward Budget grant of £773. The budget scheme gives each ward in the borough its own budget to spend on local projects.
The application specified that the grant should be spent on waders, drainage rods, bird boxes, bat boxes and wildlife recording equipment, together with educational material and equipment to support school party visits to Pinn Meadows.
Sincere thanks are due to Ward Councillors Becky and Nick for supporting the application and making it happen.
FoPM Chairman Rob Cousins says “I look forward to working with you all (and Dragana, of course!) installing and utilising our new equipment in order to ensure that we keep the Green Flag flying high over Pinn Meadows again this year”.
First 2017 Working Party
We had a fantastic turnout of 24 people in lovely Spring weather for our "Great British Spring Clean" working party on Saturday 4 March.
A huge thank you to everyone who joined Dragana and me for another great Spring Clean event on Pinn Meadows.
In joining in the Great British Spring Clean event we were among the wide range of schools, universities, councils, businesses, youth clubs, friends of parks groups, faith groups, uniformed groups all working together to make this country a cleaner and more attractive place to live. Rob Cousins
