On Sunday 23rd June we will be taking part in a nature survey on Watlington Hill in conjunction with the Friends of Watlington Hill.  We will be bringing lots of identification books so do please come even if you feel unsure of your knowledge.... the important thing is to use your eyes and every extra pair helps.

We will be meeting at the National Trust car park on the Hill at 10 am and if we finish the survey before the usual finishing time of 4pm we may also clean the White Mark.  Alternatively you could just bring a hoe and clean the White Mark.

Please wear suitable old clothing and footwear and if you plan to stay the course a packed lunch. We will supply drinks of tea coffee & squash or water. and tools but would appreciate it if you could please let us know if you plant to come so we have an idea of numbers.

Hope to see you there.


Community Herb Garden Planting & Woodland Glade Planting

Community Herb Garden & Wood land Glade planting

In Mansle Gardens on Saturday 13th May we are planting a raised bed/planter with various herbs which are for the whole community of Watlington to pick as and when they wish. It would be great if when pickng herbs they pulled a couple weeds out too so it's definately a community project.  The planting along with a Woodland Glade area where the Stump and most of the Daffodils are, is being carried out by the Mansle Gardens 'It's Your Neighbourhood' Group and assisted by Watlington In Bloom.  If you can't make the planting day please at least pay a visit to Mansle gardens so you can see how it develops over the coming months and years as it starts to really live up to its name and please do help yourself to snippets of any of the herbs for your dinner table.
