Re shaping of the reserve

Over the last couple of months a lot has been happening at the reserve. Thanks to a generous contribution from Bermondsey Community Council's Cleaner, Greener, Safer fund we have been able to start work on a comprehensive re shaping of the reserve. Volunteers with the Trust for Urban Ecology and corporations such as Deutsche Bank have been hard at work replacing the boundary fence with a habitat wall. This will encourage insects and other wildlife.
The invasive Trees of Heaven have been removed and will be replaced with native species.
The pond is to be re-landscaped and a new pond will be created away from shade. The paths will be made wheelchair accessible and a flowering meadow will be planted. We hope to organise a launch day in the spring but until then there are no open access events planned while we make the site safe for the public.
Anyone interested in being involved should contact Ben Dewhurst on 0208 293 1904
