A big thanks to Mike Street OBE from Beaudesert Scout Camp who kindly took members of the local community for a bluebell walk on the 4th May. The walk was orginally scheduled for 24th May but the bluebells came earlier this year. 12 people attended all of which thoroughly enjoyed the morning and took some beautiful photographs.
A series of other walks have been arranged and everyone is welcome to join us.The next one is on the 13th June at 10:30 June and Jillian from the Friends of Cannock Chase will be hosting a 4 mile walk from Seven Springs carpark which will include Dick Slees cave.
On the 1st of July Simon (Ranger) will be hosting a Himilyan Balsam pull at 10am at Mill Green, Cannock. This will give you the opportunity to help eradicate this invasive species.
On the 19th July at 10am join us and Justine from Lichfield DC for a guided walk over Gentleshaw Common. Please meet at the Windmill pub car park.
On the 28th of July at 10am the AONB team will be leading a Ragwort Pull at Bednall Belt car park. This is a really important way of managing this plant species and will give you an insight into why only particular areas should have the species removed as the species is the only habitat for the cinnabar moth (BAP species).
Finally, on September 7th at 10am the AONB will be hosting a litter pick at Brindley Bottom.
