DSCN9808resizedWe work on greenspaces with volunteers to improve habitats. For example, at Summer Crescent we have created a wildflower meadow, a new native species hedge and worked with local community group to develop a play area and organise clean ups involving local people. We also work on Trinity Pocket Park and The Long Ground.

Saving the Dragon in Stonehouse!pic4 4 claim7 biffawardresized

Stroud Valleys Project and its now web-footed Thursday volunteers have been hard at work clearing out reed from the main breeding pond. This work, as the picture shows, has been long overdue and it is the first time in 15 years that a large amount of reed has been literally ‘cut out’. Reed is floated to the side of the pond’s bank where it is left for a week to allow any aquatic life to move back into the pond. The reed cuttings are then moved by wheelbarrow a short distance from the main pond where they will compost down naturally.

Local foodOur new Local Food Voluntary Action project has recruited a team of volunteers and begun work, breaking new ground at the Stroud Valleys Project allotment, transforming an unloved part in just a few weeks.

Brambles were sheared back and nettles pulled; their roots were dug out and our new composting demonstration site – affectionately known as ‘The Rot Spot’ – now sits in their place.

Big Tree Plant - Year 2

Big Tree Plant logoStroud Valleys Project is once again embarking (if you excuse the pun) on its second season of creating and enhancing woodlands across Stroud District. The aim for this season (November 14 2014 to March 15 2015) is to plant 2,000 native tree and shrub species - a 1,000 of which will be planted as an extension to an existing area of woodland - and the creation of new copse at Stratford Park. We will also be working with a number of parish councils and community woodland groups to create new wooded areas and enhance older woodland.

Do you want to be out in nature in spring, looking for wildlife?

Survey trainingEvery Thursday in May and June 2018 we will be surveying the wildlife along the Nailsworth Cycle Path. We will be looking for signs of mammals, old trees and potential tree roosts for bats. We will also put up a bat detector for one week and identify the bat calls we record.

The survey techniques we will be using are:

  • Tree identification
  • Bat roost identification
  • Mammal signs
  • Phase 1 Land Use Survey

You don’t need any previous survey skills, as we will train you in the survey techniques.

Organising walks for people with hearing impairmentThe success of the programme for people with visual impairment has encouraged us to set up a similar pilot project for people with hearing impairments. The pilot is again supported by Adult Education in Gloucestershire.  The project started in the spring of 2009, with training in deaf awareness, lipspeak, and alphabet signing for a group of potential guides to support hearing impaired people in a similar series of walks.

DSCN0692resizedAfter a successful summer looking after the Capel’s Mill site we are pleased to announce that the long awaited tool store for this site has finally arrived!

We levelled the ground and positioned the breeze blocks and railway sleepers, the delivery itself was a bit dramatic with some skidding and sliding by the lorry in the mud. The cabin looked very lightweight as it swung in the air and was gently lowered onto its base. It will be shared with the canal team which means they can get rid of the small rusty tool store currently there.

Walk for people with visual impairmentWe continue to offer people with visual impairment the opportunity to explore the countryside through a programme of specifically designed educational walks. 

Subjects include grassland habitats, wildflowers - including orchids - as well as bats and glow-worms.  With funding from Gloucestershire Association for Disability, we have recruited and trained additional sighted guides to support this programme.  Wild daffodil walk for people with visual impairment

These volunteers offer contact and non-contact guiding to the participants and make the project possible.  While many of the participants comment that the walks offer them a life-line, the sighted guides find that describing and interpreting the countryside around them adds a new dimension to their own appreciation of the subjects.

Growing WildGrowing wild

Autumn is always our busiest time of year and this year has been no exception. The new term started with lots of minibeasting, with children finding all sorts of invertebrates including their favourite, the Devil’s Coach Horse Beetle, as well as a few newts and toads! We also planted school gardens with autumn sown crops including garlic, onions, winter lettuce, broad beans and peas.

We continue to be a member of the Gloucestershire Biodiversity Partnership.  Through recording and reporting survey results and habitat improvements, we make a measurable contribution to the Gloucestershire Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP).  This, in turn contributes to the South West BAP and ultimately the UK BAP.  As always, SVP works at a local level, and supports parishes in finding ways of contributing to the national plan.  In early 2009, we were appointed lead partner for hedgerows within the Gloucestershire Partnership, in recognition of the work we have undertaken in the past on planting and restoring hedgerows.  This position has been further underpinned by the funding awarded to SVP by DEFRA for work on hedgerow surveying.  Again based in the Severn Vale, this survey work planned for the summer of 2009 will contribute to DEFRA’s national hedgerow survey project.
