I read that this morning in the Gardeners World magazine this morning under their clippings page and the thought never even occurred to me! Thanks

Radio Verulam sounds familiar. I hope newboy is not referring to me when he says young'un. I was once.

Sounds very familiar Nannybeech to what lays in front of my team.
I am sure it will be an experience.

Ha ha yes a bad choice of words. 

Thats a good idea, St Albans have a local radio station I think. I can soon find out. Yes the exposure would be beneficial for promoting protecting wildlife. We actually work at two schools in Hertfordshire, I have been meaning to contact them about us coming in for a day and talking to the children about wildlife and how important it is. 

Lots to do I came on this forum not really sure how to go about this, but I am now full of ideas

We always take photos of before and after to put on our website. I would be more than  happy to show some and if we discover anything interesting. 

The area has been approved by the council, they are very organised. 

I did go to Capel Manor in Enfield. I live in Barnet which is not far away. This project is only a short drive away by car. 

I was thinking about that but I am not quite sure how to recruit volunteers. We would only need volunteers who would assist in the first stage to help move any wildlife before any work was carried out.

As a gesture of good will we could donate some money to a local wildlife charity.

What I find refreshing is that I always come on to this forum for professional & expert advise & always find everyone very helpful.

Thank you everyone for all your advise.

They have bought the land next to their property a few years ago to stop developers building on it.

Unfortunately it's gone out of control & is completely overgrown. I have estimated 60 + tons of rubble dumped presumably by travellers & goodness knows what else. They have decided they want it cleared & to use the area for a large garden with sections for wildlife. To be honest, you would really need to see it as it's difficult to describe. They want it levelled & to start again.

It's a complete jungle overgrown by nettles & brambles as far as the eye can see. They approached a few companies to get quotes to completely clear it & to start again. We are also installing a 150 metre fence around the area, installing a 150sq metre driveway & building a 16 metre wall with an entrance gate. So it's a very large & expensive project that's costing tens of thousands of pounds.

I have advised them of the wildlife & we will do everything we can along with the local wildlife trust & I will also speak to the council.

I will indeed contact Capel Manor and ask for their advise & possible help. Great idea.

I employ 7 people & our aim is to complete all the work within 5 weeks. It's impossible to do it manually so we are hiring a 6 ton digger & will require 5-7 grab lorries to remove the rubble.

I think asking for volunteers before the work has started would be a good idea from a local charity or college.

Thanks for all your help & advise
