Working to restore a rural waterway

Bank work in Sleaford

Thanks to those who helped on the work party in Sleaford to put the specialised seeded plugs in the coir roll edging on Riverside Green. Thanks too to the Greggs Foundation who helped fund the work there. These plugs are not cheap!

The increased water depth made things a bit difficult but at least there’s no danger of the aquatic plants drying out and hopefully new growth will start soon. The wire mesh on top of the plants is a temporary measure to prevent the young shoots from being eaten by the ducks before they get properly established.

Hopefully before too long the coir roll and vegetation will help provide habitat for a variety of species as well as helping to stabilise the bank.
