Big Beach Clean 2018


For this beach clean we had over 30 volunteers and lifted a huge pile of stuff of the beach between the outlets of the Hermitage and the Langbrook Streams.


FoLH activity on 1st July 2017 

On 1st July we had a busy day!  In the morning 21 of us litter picked the beach at Budds Farm (the picture only shows part of the pickers).  In the afternoon we were at the Bedhampton Bidbury Mead Show where Alan's beach clean demo was enjoyed by young and old alike.

Our Elms survive Flood Protection Work


These are six elms which we planted at Portcreek in 2004. 

They were recently surrounded by the major flood protection work but happily they were protected by the contractors.

Our Elms and Ali's Hedge


We planted two sorts of disease resistant elms at the Portsmouth Watersports centre in2003. The 'lutec' cultivars have not done very well and there are now just a couple surviving (first picture).  The 'white elms' are smaller but doing quite well.  And much better news is the state of the hedge we planted for Alison Went in 2005 (third picture)
