CORONAVIRUS IMPACT AND CANCELLATIONS - CHAIRMAN 'S MESSAGE

As I write this , the Nickey Line is seeing lots of use from individuals and small groups taking exercise, particularly in some sunny days (what a nice change from rain!)

** PLEASE DO KEEP GROUPS VERY SMALL/FAMILY BASED AND ALSO KEEP IN MIND SOCIAL DISTANCING  - OR WE MAY SEE THE LINE AND PLACES LIKE IT BEING BANNED TO AVOID GROUP GATHERINGS **

AGM and other events - Please note we have cancelled our AGM in May as well as walks up to and including June. Let's hope we can get back to normality soon...

Best wishes to you all and keep safe.

Dave Abernethy

Chairman

Butterfly Walk to Knott Wood 21 July

A lovely day saw 20 attendees join our annual butterffly walk to the scallops alongside Knott Wood. Impreesive numbers of butterflies were observed, with 14 different species seen. So a record number of attendees and butterflies!



Work Party Achievements over the Autumn and early Winter 2019

Our magnificent volunteers have risen to the challenge of delivering on the Management Plans for the Nickey Line (NL)

In Dacorum further work by Cherry Tree Lane Bridge has opened up the bridge even more, while several work parties have kept on top of the recurring litter problem

It the St Albans DC owned section of the NL, the orchard area was cleared by CMS volunteers with NL volunteers in attendance, and plans are afoot to keep less overgrown in future years. Extensive hazel coppices was also done

Nearer Harpenden the six open areas (scallops) have been cut, and the views restored, further hedge laid, and large hazels coppiced. In December our voluntters have opended up the views of the Ambrose Lane bridge

If you are interested in joining our work parties, please contact the Friends. You will be welcomed! The work is good outdoor gym, allows you to meet similarly minded people, and benefits the community
