We had two ideas for Ewhurst LEAP this month:
1) to work on improving the frontage of the village hall with planters. Unfortunately we don't yet have all the materials we need, nor agreement with all stakeholders in what we should do, so this has to be delayed.
2) to do some "Balsam Bashing" (i.e. removing the invasive weed Himalayan Balsam), but as the spring has been cold the plants are still too low to pick them out easily from nettles etc. so this will have to be delayed.
So, I'm sorry but there will be no LEAP working party this month. However, for those of you who joined with the Treezilla tree surveying exercise in January, you will remember how hard it was too identify the species of tree when they had no leaves, flowers or fruit! Saturday might be the perfect day to go round again to visit your trees and update your identifications. You could perhaps even survey some more trees too. Anyone who wasn't there can find details at
Please get in touch if you would like to do this and need anything or are finding the instructions hard to follow!
In the meantime Joanna has seen a notice about a guided walk in Cranleigh by Surrey Wildlife Trust Wetlands Officer Glen Skelton (next week Thursday 10th June, 7pm). For details see
Richard has completed a year of monthly ramblings! April's, and all the rest, are all available from
He told me "This is to be the last as I have done them for a year, although I am writing one last chapter trying to draw it all together." He has said that he might occasionally add more if he sees things of interest. Thank you Richard for these marvelously described walks around the parish.
I hope LEAP can do more in July, but until then enjoy the lovely weather.
I hope you are all well,
All the best,
