North East Connected

Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Screen Shot 2016-04-12 at 14.20.50VOLUNTEERS are being sought to help keep one of Middlesbrough’s wildlife havens in peak condition.

Boro Becks are joining forces with Middlesbrough Council and Tees Wildlife Trust to help local people learn about the wildflowers and wildlife that live in the Berwick Hills Nature Reserve Meadow.

And this Thursday (April 14) there’s an open invitation to all to drop in and help improve the meadow.

All are welcome between 10am and 1pm – even if it’s just for ten minutes to say hello and find out what’s involved.

For those with a little more time on their hands, the team will be cutting and raking the grass and generally tidying up the surrounding area, with plenty of opportunities to do some wildlife spotting and wildflower identification with friendly expert help.

The activity is being run by the Boro Becks volunteer group and the Wild Green Places project.

The entrance to the Berwick Hills Nature Reserve Meadow is via the ‘flowery’ gates off Bradhope Road.

For more information on Thursday’s activity, contact Paul at pbamber@teeswildlife.org.uk or call 01287 636382.

Boro Becks is a voluntary group who meet weekly to carryout practical tasks on various sites in Middlesbrough. Anyone interested in joining should call Jim Moody on 07513 335377.
