|Tue 19-Sept 18:30||Osterley Lock||General orchard care across the entire site.|
|Tue 26-Sept 18:30||Trumpers Field, Jubilee Meadow||Keeping areas around trees and paths clear.|
|All Sites||12-July||New labels are needed.
The watering tubes are inaccessible on some trees owing to enthusiastic mulching.
|Osterley Lock||12-Sept||Entire site cut-back complete.|
|Elthorne Terrace||12-Sept||Trees near the rogue BBQ site need better rabbit guards.|
|Elthorne Triangles||12-Sept||Partially cut manually.
(Park rangers will flail the area soon as it is large and uneven, thus difficult to scythe by hand.)
|The Piggeries||2-Sept||Cut and cleared over and over again, we feel this site is in very good shape; may not need much attention until perhaps a last autumn clearing in late October.|
|St. Margaret’s||12-Sept||Late summer cut-back complete.|
|Trumpers Field||12-Aug||Rangers flailed the site.|
|Jubilee Meadow||25-July||Rabbit guards mostly upgraded, weed cut around trees. Stakes replaced, stone fruit trees pruned.|
|Blackberry Corner||5-Sept||Finished late summer cut-back (subject to growing conditions in late Sept/Oct).|
|Three Bridges Park||9-July||Looking good if perhaps a little thirsty, grounds freshly cut by council contractor.
(Observed from across the canal.)
|Glade Lane Canalside Park||12-Sept||Thicket cleared around trees. More clearing work needed.|
|Top Lock||9-July||Looking good.
(Managed by volunteer lock keepers.)
|Bixley Triangle||6-July||Trees in Bixley triangle are all doing well and have had additional watering.|
Perhaps you did not have weeding or watering in mind. Perhaps you like the idea of re-creating scenes from historic postcards along the canal? Counting plant species? Researching local history?
