Fire update

After all the hard work done to prepare for the planned ecological burn on Meadowridge Common in early 2020 that included the removal of poles and signposts, strategies to safeguard several honeybee nests, local public talks and the distribution of information letters, the Covid pandemic and a local resident’s objection to possible smoke inhalation, meant that the deadline was missed and the fire never took place. However, it has been re-scheduled for autumn 2022.

A poster has been created by the Friends of Meadowridge Common for display on the Common, to inform visitors about why this ecological intervention is vital for the health of the Common, and what progress has been made. It can be downloaded here.
