This is to let you know what is going on with the Westbrook Undercliffe Town Green. The site, adjacent to Barnes Car Park, is part of the project “Making a Buzz on the Coast”.
Volunteers are needed who would be interested in helping with the project. This could be help with planting shrubs or wild flowers, doing Bee surveys, Leading Bee walks or other tasks.
If you are interested there is a talk on 24th January that you may like to attend details as follows:-
The Bumblebee Conservation Trust is teaming up with Thanet Coast Project, Thanet District Council, Kent Wildlife Trust and others to enhance bumblebee populations in and around Thanet. This is part of a wider HLF funded project in Kent called Making a Buzz for the Coast. To introduce local people to the work in Thanet, and to hear about opportunities to get involved, there will be a talk at 7pm on 24th January in Droit House at the Margate Visitor Information Centre. The talk will also include information about the bumblebee species found in this part of Kent. Spaces are limited, so please visit the following link to register: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/making-a-buzz-for-the-coast-conserving-rare-bumblebees-in-thanet-tickets-41499920379?ref=estw or contact Lawrie Sampson on 07718453218

Our next Work Day is on Saturday 24th February starting at 10 am.
This involves planting a hundred trees to replace those accidently cut by council contractors.
If you would like to be involved or know of anyone else who might be interested in the project, please pass on this message to anyone you think would like to help. If you can bring a spade that would be good although some tools will be available on the day. If you are not physically able to help with planting still come and give us support (cake is always welcome).
If you can help in any way please contact.
