The work on the heathland restoration laying heathers on our trial area went well. We managed to avoid the rain as it started just as we were finishing!
Thank you to everyone who turned out to help.

Heather planting work party for restoration of the heathland.

We have been asked to help with laying the new Heather on the patch that we cleared over the last few weeks.
We will be organising a work party on 
Tuesday 21 st November at meet 2 pm at the church hall. 
We will provide refreshments after the work tea and cake.
We hope you can come along and join us as we need as many helpers as possible.
Looking forward to seeing you.

(Note the time as we usually meet in the mornings and this is an afternoon event.)

The Friends of Etching Hill have been working closely with the local Police, the Cannock Chase Council and the Trustees to the hill and have replaced a notice board recently damaged by vandalism. 
The Chairman of the Friends of Etching Hill said he can't understand why someone would damage anything on the hill as it has been enjoyed by people of all ages over the years and he hopes that it will remain a beautiful place for future generations to visit and appreciate. 
The police have reminded people that if anyone finds any antisocial behaviour they can ring 101 or if there is any criminal damage or vandalism taking place they can ring 999.
