Supporters of Sustainable Ledbury have recently spent a couple of mornings cutting back an overgrown area of the Town Trail, near Bye Street/Bridge Street.
The 'brash' is being left as 'dead hedges'. This will maintain the natural cycle of material rotting back into the ground and provide habitat for insects and invertebrates.
The team have so far removed 2 bags of litter per session. This work is a first step in the plan to increase the range of woodland plants in the area, making it more attractive for the town and providing greater biodiversity for wildlife.
