Himalayan Balsam has started to grow again along the Frome so our intrepid team of volunteers has started taking action to eradicate it from our river. Although the plants are still quite small, there are already some dense patches which are crowding out native plants.  

By taking action early it is possible to prevent the production of flowers and seeds and hence to stop the spread. We will be meeting regularly during the growing season so please contact us if you'd like to join us for some gentle exercise, fresh air, pleasant company and a feeling of satisfaction gained from helping to improve the natural environment.
