Bluebell Walk
Thursday 17 April 6.30pm
Graveney Woods

Meet at the Lodge, Furzedown Drive

Latecomers look for us at the top of Birchwood Road, then down the edge of Furzedown Road and later into the woods

The early bluebells are in full flower now but the native English ones are slightly behind so we may put on another walk in a few weeks time to admire those ones.

Please join us to see the magnificent display of bluebells, celandines and anemones made possible by several sessions of bramblepulling over the last few months.
