On Sunday 17th April - in bright sunshine (for once)  Friends of the Carrs ably assisted by Wilmslow Clean Team and and volunteers from the David Lewis Centre  undertook the first working party and litter pick of the year.

It has to be said that we were all pleasantly surprised at how little litter there was in The Carrs this time which is a testament to the good habits of  the park users!

Lots of jobs were undertaken including  unblocking drains(!)  and cutting back the willows on the river bank.

Tea and cakes were provided by Ranger Emma and a good day was had by all.  It would b e great to see more people next time though!

Our next event is Canine Capers on The Carrs  22nd May at 12 noon.

The first Balsam Bash of the year is on 26th June at 2pm.

We do hope the Guardian don't mind us reproducing this fascinating article from last weekend.

All very interesting but please take note that the Japanese Knotweed in The Carrs IS routinely treated with herbicide so whatever you do don't go picking it and making a crumble!

If you happen to have some of the dreaded invader in your garden though, why not give it a try?  It's probably the best way of getting rid of it!
