A couple of thank yous are in order. First of all to Richard Timpson who has “retired” from his duties as one of the people who regularly checks the ponies, making sure they are in good health and nothing is amiss. We are very grateful to Richard for his time and commitment over the last ten years, week in and week out.
The more people we have to help with the ponies the better and if you are interested in joining us please contact Tim Angell on 01328 700045.
Secondly, thank you to everyone who has helped with digging up the ragwort on the common this year. Ragwort is poisonous to livestock if eaten and although it has value to wildlife, being the food-plant of the striking yellow and black cinnabar moth caterpillar, it is something we need to keep on top of. Many hours of volunteer time have been put into this work by both the Litcham Common Conservation Group and the Mid-Norfolk Conservation Volunteers, often in hot sunny weather, and our thanks go to everyone involved.
Our Next Conservation Task
In a change to our normal routine the conservation group’s next task will take place on Saturday 17th September, meeting in Litcham Common car park at 10am. (The reason for the change from the usual second Saturday is that some of our regular volunteers will be taking part in the Norfolk Churches Trust sponsored bike ride).
New volunteers will be welcome. Tools and protective gloves are provided.
If you would like to find out more please contact Tim Angell.
