Evening Scything Session

2 August, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm BST

Sunday 2 August 2020: Evening Scything Session with Sustainable South Brent’s 4Bs project (Brent Butterflies, Bugs and Bees) from 4pm, starting at the roadside verge outside the play park and/or later on the Apple a Day Orchard (Dr’s Surgery). Anyone who has their own scythe and can safely use it is welcome as well as anyone else who wants to come and watch a traditional activity taking place. There may be an opportunity for adults to learn how to scythe but this depends on the number of trained participants available and the number of people wanting to learn. You can also help in other ways such as raking up the grasses and loading into dumpy bags. Please bring your own rakes and dumpy bags if you have them. We will transport the grasses/wildflowers to the Marsh Composting Site so offers of transport would be welcome too.

Please note:

  • Please do not bring dogs. Children are welcome to watch but cannot participate. A first aid kit will be available on the day and first aiders will be present.
  • All participants must stay at least 1m from each other at all times. If anyone has any symptoms of Covid-19, (high temperature, new and continuous cough and/or loss of sense of taste or smell) they are asked to stay away from the event and will not be allowed to participate.
  • In the event of foul weather the event will be postponed.
  • A risk assessment will be gone through on the day
