Members of EWG met in June 2018 to clear invasive plant species and plant native aquatic species to encourage bugs, birds, bats and other wildlife to the site. This was part of our bat conservation project sponsored by Gregg’s the Bakers’ local environmental project funding.

We had previously cleared the site with the help of Ealing Rangers to remove unwanted trees, scrub and vegetation that was swamping the meadow edges, overgrowing on the waterside and blocking out a lot of light to the water course fed by Hanwell Spring.

With the help of a hired digger, we also dredged the large pond area and created a wetland scrape in the dampest part of the meadow.
