Pams Pools

PAMS POOLS

Things have been going well on Pam's Pools Wildlife Reserve despite Covid19.

In mid-December volunteers planted 950 native trees, thanks to a grant from the Woodlands Trust and a generous donation from Joyce & Martin Green. Hence" Brookfield" has become "Greenwood"

On 9th January I completed the purchase of "Home Field" and this 8.4 acre field brings the total area of the reserve to about 110 acres


Friends of mine have a family business importing Fairtrade organic coffee; roasting it off-grid at their home on Wenlock Edge ; packaging it sustainably; and selling it online http://www.apostlecoffee.com or from local shops like Keith's in Bridgnorth . The carbon footprint from transporting the beans across the Atlantic they off-set by planting trees and shrubs - one per annum for each subscriber. A public footpath running along one edge of Home Field is having their trees planted down one side and their shrubs down the other.

Another donation will enable a small stream is to be diverted into little pond to be dug in Riverside South.

And Shropshire Wildlife Trust have got a Countryside Stewardship grant to dig a further pond, plant and lay hedges and more ….

So the time has come to ask for volunteers. Email me on pamela.yuille@doctors.org.uk or phone 07793939291 any evening to book some healthy, worthwhile, outdoor exercise. BUT Covid19

currently means - strictly only if you are local and come alone or in your bubble and guarantee to keep socially at least 2 metres away from me, and sadly I cannot offer the usual refreshments.
