The Green – work undertaken during half-term week

During half-term week, Stephen Bailey, of Stephen Bailey Landscaping, with the help of volunteers from the Hythe Green Preservation Society, undertook conservation work on Hythe Green as part of a five year plan to manage and conserve the hedgerows and woodland areas on the boundaries of the Green, with the view encouraging a greater diversity of wildlife.  This project was funded by Hythe Town Council and initiated by the Hythe Green Preservation Society following advice from the Kent Wildlife Trust and the Bumblebee Conservation Society.  The plan is to clear out and manage the hedgerows, which have become overgrown, and to re-plant new hedgerow on the boundary between the Green and Hythe Bay School – and to clear out the woodland area on the Sims Portex boundary, creating a woodland walk which can be safely enjoyed by the community.  If anyone is interested in the project and would like to find out more, please find a copy Management Plan on the Hythe Green Preservation Society website.
