The Civic Society's 3rd annual Balsam Bash is being extended this year and we should be delighted to see interested people come along and help.

This rather handsome but invasive plant is an extensive problem nationwide. An escapee from Victorian gardens, it has spread rapidly along river courses to the detriment of our native species.

The good news is that as it is an annual it can be successfully controlled if removed before it seeds. Hence a concerted annual attach will eventually control it, although this is a long term project given its abundance!

Please come along and help whether you have an hour or a morning to spare. Clothing covering arms and legs is recommended (nettles(, gloves and stout footwear

Meet  by the bridge at Severnside South July 29th, August 5, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11. Contact Steve Bent for further information stevenclivebent1@aol.com
