Weed-killing
The meadows had their annual weed-killing on Monday 19th June, and have now re-opened.

We are required to undertake weed killing annually under our agreement with Natural England. The purpose is to remove invasive broad-leaved weeds such as thistle, dock, burdock, ragwort and nettles to allow the grass and wild flowers to flourish.
