“We'd like to say a huge thank you to the small but determined band of volunteers that came out this morning to help us begin the clearing up, and to Ian from the Hawthorns Centre for his help and for the equipment,” SO18 Big Local said on its Facebook page.

“Following the ‘hard graft’ we had a lovely walk through the copse with Ian, spotting wildlife and identifying areas that need our attention in the future, as well as looking at ways the area could be improved (for people and for the animals!).”
