Thanks to all the volunteers who raked up the grass in Boscastle on Sunday. You did a grand job and hope you all enjoyed your day. Everyone definitely deserved their cup of coffee at the end of the day.
The annual grass cut is an important part of managing the meadows for wildlife, particularly the wild flowers and butterflies which live in the valley. The cutting removes nutrients from the meadow, which prevents the grasses becoming dominant in the meadow and out-competing the wildflowers. Thanks to your good work hopefully the meadow will be full of wildflowers and butterflies next summer.
The next Boscastle to Morwenstow volunteer day is on Tuesday 3 September at Stowe Orchard, hope to see a few of you there.
