What is a megabash, you ask? It is a community event designed to get people actively involved in practical wildlife conservation & looking after the land on their doorstep! It will be led by the Greenways Project, with the support of other local volunteer groups. Activities planned are scrub clearing, woodland management, dead hedging & path improvement work. Everyone is invited. All are welcome. Just bring yourself in appropriate clothing and footwear as tools & expertise will be provided, and, most importantly, tea, coffee & biscuits, along with jacket potatoes cooked over a bonfire (weather permitting).
Meet at 10am in the Martlesham Community Hall car park, Felixstowe Road, IP12 4PB
For many years the Common has been managed by the Parish Council with the help of the Greenways and Countryside Project to ensure the survival of the flora and fauna associated with the Sandlings landscape. We are pleased that we have been able to recognise this work and formally designate the area as a local nature reserve (LNR). We hope this designation will encourage all users to respect the very special and threatened environment which this represents.
The new framed entrances define the footpaths and mark the site boundaries. We have upgraded the footpaths and are now working on the new information boards to be displayed.
