This event is organised by the Walter Recreation Ground Charity and Crowthorne Reduce Our Waste (CROW).

Spring 2023

The routine spring growth is particularly abundant this year, since the dark laurel bushes were removed last summer. The plant with white flowers and a distinctive, triangular-shaped stem are thriving.

This false garlic is a native from S America but fortunately, our native invertebrates can still enjoy the nectar. Trustees and council staff will keep an eye on it to over the coming years to make sure that it doesn't swamp the other species.

Native saplings planted in March are doing well and are coming into leaf, even the ones planted on the top of the hill to help decommission the stony path. The trees were part of a 'wild harvest' pack so they will provide plenty of nectar, fruit and nuts for local fauna when they are established.

Please do get in touch if you have noticed whether the bird boxes are being used, both in the Walter Recreation Ground and Circle Hill. These were put up in January with the help of the Men's Shed volunteers.

New path in the Walter Recreation Ground

The popular, local, cut-through to the High Street and pedestrian crossing, is now more useable throughout the whole year.

The steep, rooted path has been closed off for safety reasons. Please keep on the new path so the vegetation can start to recolonise the disturbed areas.

In addition to letting natural regeneration take its course, we will be sowing woodland wildflower seed which has kindly been donated by Wellington College. If the vegetation has a chance to thrive untrampled, this area will be a valuable wildlife habitat by this time next year.

Funding for this path was awarded by Involve and The National Lottery Community Fund. The Walter Recreation Ground is managed by the Walter Recreation Ground Charity.
