Ickles Lock – Tree Planting

11-01-22 10:00 - 13:00
Brinsworth St, Rotherham S60 1AB, UK
Address: Brinsworth St, Rotherham S60 1AB, UK

Join the Friends of the Don Valley Way and Rotherham Council for a day of tree-planting at Ickles Lock. We’ll be planting small trees onto a grassland area. The trees are a mixture of native species that will act to support wildlife and provide new woodland habitat at the site. These trees will also help soak up and intercept rainwater, helping to ‘slow the flow’ of water into the navigation during high rainfall events.

 

Times: 10am-1pm
Date: Tuesday 11th January

Where: We are meeting at the small car park off Brinsworth street. Go over the level crossing, then over the bridge over the canal and it’s the second right into the car park.
You can use what three words (///dine.formal.axed) to get there:  https://what3words.com/dine.formal.axed

 

Equipment and protective gear, like wellingtons, will be provided for volunteers to borrow on the day.
Hot drinks and biccies provided, but please bring your own water and lunch if you’ll need it.

New volunteers are always welcome, but please contact the office before – volunteer@dcrt.org.uk

  • 25-01-22 10:00 - 25-01-22 15:00

    Tasks: natural flood management - leaky dam installation

    Timing: 10am - 3pm

     

    The main activity of the day will involve building leaky dams of different sizes made out of timber from the woods that are fixed into position across streams. The dams help to slow down flood flows as water levels rise during heavy rainfall. Activities will include digging, sawing, post bashing, moving logs into position and fixing them in place. It’s quite physical work but we have lifting aids to help share the load and will have plenty of breaks and biscuits to help keep energy levels up! Long sleeves, trousers and waterproofs are recommended. All other equipment will be provided.

     

    There are a limited number of spaces available so you will need to book on to sessions in advance.
