The Countryside & Parks Conservation Group (CPCG) will be hosting a hedge-laying and bramble-slashing event from 10.30am to 3pm on November 24.

Chris Walsh, Biodiversity Officer for Lichfield District Council, said: “We hope to get plenty of volunteers along on the day to help us with this valuable conservation work.

“Hedges play an important role at Christian Fields, as they encourage birds, small mammals and insects to the local nature reserve.”

Christian Fields is off Eastern Avenue (WS13 7JU). The group will meet at the top car park.

“We’re always keen to welcome new members to the group. If you’re joining us for this conservation day, remember to wear sturdy outdoor clothes and bring along gardening gloves. We’ll provide hot drinks and biscuits, but you’ll need to bring your own packed lunch,” added Chris.

All over 18s are welcome. To book your free place, call Denice Deverall on 01543 308183 or email For a full programme of CPCG events visit
