Reed bed ‘short back and sides’

This Sunday the 27th October we need help with our biannual reed bed cut in the Porth Mear valley near Park Head. Cutting the reeds prevents the reed bed from drying out and encourages biodiversity. A great way to spend a Sunday using traditional cutting tools and watching out for kestrels on the valley slopes. We’ll provide afternoon tea and biscuits. Bring wellies if you have them (we can provide otherwise).

Meet: Park Head car park, SW 851 709 PL27 7UU

Day starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm
Tools, gloves and tuition: all provided by National Trust
Bring: food and drink, footwear and clothing suitable for the weather and task
Cost: Free
Booking: Please call the Rangers on 01208 863821
or email

If you don’t know the area, local musician Ruarri Joseph shot this Video (featuring ‘sand Artist’ Tony Plant) for his song ‘Until The Luck Runs Dry’ at the next beach along at Park Head – a stunning song and a stunning part of the coast
