Big Garden Bird Watch 2024

The board will be coming out again on the last Sunday , 28th January, we will be set up for 10.30am by the café until 12.30. We might have some helpers this year from our Duke of Edinburgh volunteers, which means we might run a small birdy craft workshop too?


Hedge Laying Free training

Thanks to CPRE London we have funding to run training sessions in the ancient craft of hedge laying. Work has started on the Veda Road Boundary Hedge. That’s across the stone circle and look left down the hill to the lower Vicars Hill Entrance. If you are interested in training, please sign you to one of the remaining sessions.



Wild Flower Walk

Monday, 17th July, 2023 meet at the café for 7pm. We’ll be walking through the hay meadow, so trouser would be sensible!

Orchard Maintenance Session – Sunday, 12th February 2023 from 10.30am until 12.30pm

If you want to help our orchard thrive, please join us this Sunday. We have lots of tasks, weeding, mulching, digging out brambles and pruning. Please bring garden gloves and a garden fork or spade can be handy, but don’t let no tools stop you coming, we have some too. If you want to join us, it would be helpful to confirm details, please email us on Hillyfields4@googlemail.com.

We shall be in the orchard (between the stone circle and the little wood) at 10.30am.

Our annual Wassail is delayed this year, as our wonderful musicians are busy, ‘on tour’ and that sort of thing. We are hoping to organise for late February.
