Dear Volunteers,

We finally got out today after the wet weather to do some Balsam bashing and had a lovely few hours on the banks at Warden. There is still lots to do there so I will arrange some more dates.

Also, please bear with me in replying to email, I am often out of the office at this time of year so may be slower than usual in replying. On Monday I will be spending some time with Tees Rivers Trust learning how to tackle Giant Hogweed so that we can get some dates in the diary to do this ourselves in the Tyne catchment.

One of the Gateshead Council Volunteers Valerie Gray is having a Balsam bash on the Derwent tomorrow (next to the football club at Winlaton Mill) 12-2pm. If anybody is available to go along and help her she would very much appreciate it.

Task days are-
Tuesday 4th July– West Woodburn-10.30am- balsam bash. We will be meeting TRT volunteer Alan Gray to tackle the balsam here. I will be leaving the office at around 10am.
Wednesday 5th July– Derwenthaugh Park- 10.30am-2.30pm. Big balsam bash event with partners such as Land of Oak and Iron, Durham Wildlife Trust and other volunteer groups. This is a social event with lots of balsam pulling and we will also be doing some kick sampling sessions. I will be leaving the office at around 9am to help to set up for this event.
Let me know if you can come along to any of the above and travel arrangements.

Looking forward to seeing some of you soon!

Best Wishes,
