June round-up: Telescopes to trees

At the beginning of the month we were privileged to host Greg Smye-Rumsby during Wandsworth Heritage Fortnight who gave a fascinating talk about the Craig telescope - built on ‘the Scope’ area of Wandsworth Common in the 1850s but sadly never working as intended.

The month ended with another of Jess Stocks’ (Enable LC) popular tree walks, this time looking at some non natives such as the tulip and strawberry tree. Meanwhile, Trevor took some keen walkers further afield to Battersea Park. 

The Friends committee met for the first time since the AGM and our sister organisation, the MAC, held its APM in the middle of the month. Minutes of both meetings are on the website.  

Friends and MAC reps also met with the Council/Enable to start discussions on how to monitor implementation of the forthcoming MMP. 

Last but not least we held another litter pick and also resumed swan and duck food bagging as the Skylark cafe reopened in time for the Summer.
