We will be meeting in the park on Sunday 9th May between 2pm and 5pm to undertake
various tasks around the park.
The weather forecast suggests it may be wet that weekend.
The Covid rule of 6 people meeting outside still applies until June so we must work independently or in small groups.

1. Finish removing buddleia hanging over the path on phase 1 (near the central oak tree).
2. Tidying up around the Orchard trees.
3. Cut back trees blocking light to the Orchard trees.
4. Cut the willow next to the Orchard.
5. Cut down the dead tree at the Train Seat, near Dalmally Passage (taking care to avoid falling branches).

BHRA
 

  • The BHRA was formed 35 years ago to give a voice to local people on issues that matter to them.
     

  • The BHRA Committee meets regularly to listen to local concerns and to plan social events, to which all members are invited.
     

  • Each road covered by the Association has a representative who is automatically on the committee to ensure that issues are raised and heard.

  • Recent Matters under discussion have inevitably been the Blackhorse Lane Bridge closure and is negative impact on local residents and local traders, and the newly refurbished Ashburton Hall.
     

  • The Association also writes regularly to the Council on issues such as fly-tipping, street lighting and traffic/parking, BHRA worked with the council on behalf of residents to limit the use of Tenterden Road, Pagehurst and Wydehurst for the numerous fun fairs, main entry is now via the new double gates at the front of Ashburton Park.
