Conservation
October saw the re-start of Swaines Green conservation work, we have a break between April and September allowing the flora and fauna a chance to look after itself.

Our first task is usually with the Epping Forest District Council conservation team, Countrycare, and their volunteers undertaking what amounts to a hay cut on Lovelocks field.

After a number of years tackling the Blackthorn scrub, which at one point dominated the field, I am happy to report we are now well on the way to implementing the management plan drawn up for Lovelocks after the invertebrate survey of 2005.
