Carshalton Environmental Fair

This August bank holiday the SNCV braved the wet weather at the Environmental Fair at Carshalton Park. Despite the considerable support from volunteers at the SNCV stall, the weather was determined to keep the crowds away!

Nonetheless, the SNCV were on hand to help present the new Sutton Nature Explorer Map to visitors, which is a handy source of information on wildlife sites around Sutton. Regular volunteers were also at the stall, ready to talk to any potential new recruits about the work that the SNCV does, involving everything from hedgelaying to coppicing, scrub clearance and planting. We’re lucky enough to have a variety of different habitats in Sutton, including chalk grassland, woodland and wetlands, all of which the SNCV help to maintain and conserve for wildlife. 

If you’re interested in finding out more about nature sites near you, then check out the article below. And for anyone that didn’t get a chance to get down to the stall on Monday, if you want to find out more about our events or are interested in volunteering then do get in touch at sncvvolunteers@hotmail.co.uk!
