The Big Balsam Bash 2022 is two weeks of intense action where communities come together to tackle Himalayan Balsam, an invasive species causing unrest to our native plants and wildlife. A number of charities and community groups have already signed up to organise public and private events during the 4th-18th July 2022, can you get involved too?

.... and the OTHER events are....


Usually the first Saturday of the month 10am to 12 noon

3HG have helped in recent years with local charities and any involvement has been fun and worthwhile..!
Task Days are regular opportunities for willing volunteers from 3HG to do their bit for the community e.g. refresh woodchip paths, plant trees, clear Himalayan balsam, coppicing, etc.
Let's have a good turn out - starting March 5th!

Further task days planned for (March 5th), April 2nd, May 7th, June 4th, July 2nd, Aug 6th, Sept 3rd, Oct 1st, Nov 5th.
