Lapal Canal/Leasowes Park Scrub Bash work party

Saturday, January 18, from 10:00 to around 17:00

Work on the Lapal Canal bed
This is a Lapal Canal Trust event.
Peter Fisher, Lapal Canal Trust, warmly invites you to come and help with a “Scrub Bash” by Leasowes Park.
We could do with your help clearing scrub grown over the summer along the route of the canal in Leasowes Park. The work involves cutting back brambles, saplings and tree growth. Tree growth can be 4″ diameter from previously cut saplings. Work is in the bed of the canal so may be wet with a few inches/10cm of water in places.
Meet at the canal narrows at the back of Westdean close B26 8UA/Ladypool close on the southern edge of Leasowes Park in Halesowen (location in photo). We will work south away from Leasowes park from that point, mainly the coppice but undergrowth needs clearing too towards the clearing/access(parking) by Hamilton Avenue.
Plenty of car parking available in Leasowes park B62 8DH:
Please bring tools for the type of work expected. Gloves etc highly recommended.
