This Sunday, 24 February, at Porthcothan cliffs overlooking the stunning beach, there’s a chance to cut scrub and eat spuds. This will be the last Scrub n Spuds event for us for the winter season to then leave birds to nest and fledge throughout the spring and summer.
The National Trust rangers need help cutting gorse and blackthorn scrub to open up areas to help ground nesting birds such as the rare corn bunting and skylarks. Many other species will benefit too; flowering plants and grasses, insects, butterflies and other birds too.
Jacket spuds will be cooked in the bonfire. Baked beans and cheese fillings are also provided. Please bring your own additional snacks and drinks for the day. Wear sturdy footwear and clothes suitable for thorny, smoky work.
All tools, gloves and tuition provided by the National Trust rangers.
Meet at 10am in the public car park in Porthcothan. The day will finish about 4pm.
