Nature Consevation Day - Hedge Laying @ Rectory Farm Fields, Kidlington | England | United Kingdom

Our last scheduled task at Rectory Farm Fields back in March was cancelled due to snow. So the plan today is to pick up work on the hedge-line where we left off at the very end of 2017. We’ll look to lay, stake and bind some more sections of hedge. It’s likely that we’ll be doing more hedge-laying than usual this winter, so this is a good chance to get your eye (and arm) in early on. If you’ve never done this before come along and give it a go, it’s one of the most enjoyable and satisfying things we do.

We’ll provide all the tools and training and no previous experience is needed. Just remember to bring a packed lunch and wear old clothes and stout footwear.

Under-18s are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

You don’t have to tell us that you’re coming – either meet us at one of the minibus pickup points in Oxford:

1) Outside the Lamb and Flag Pub on St. Giles at 9.20am
2) Outside Tesco on Cowley Road at 9.30am
