Over the past five years, the Nantwich Civic Society has organised volunteers from across many local groups as well as individuals to take to the river banks to pull up Himalayan Balsam.

We do it because this pretty plant just spreads everywhere – smothering all other native plants as it goes.

The diversity of bugs, other wildlife and plants just disappear.

It is a very common problem throughout most of our country.

This year, we have held four Tuesday mornings with from 12 – 6 volunteers, for a couple of hours a time.

Remarkable results have been achieved. Everyone says its vert therapeutic and satisfying – which helps.

Another session is planned for Tuesday 18th, at Shrewbridge road car park at 10am.

We are always welcoming to anyone who would like to try it out. Wear long sleeves and trousers, good footwear and gloves.

Possibly a hat and a drink. That’s all you need.
