DITTON COMMON GOLF COURSE  
ACID GRASSLAND / HEATHLAND MANAGEMENT

  

Volunteers from the Lower Mole Partnership will be working on Ditton Golf Course again next week, cutting back scrub to open up the site. Following discussions with the golf club and Elmbridge officers and councillors, a programme of management has been agreed.


Recent management by Elmbridge Borough Council and the Lower Mole Partnership has helped to restore areas of lowland heath and acid grassland, which are vital for many plant and reptile species seen on the common. It has also improved sightlines and made walking in the area more enjoyable.


We will be working here on Tuesday 13th February to Thursday 15th February from shortly after 10.00am to 4.00pm.


If you would like to find out more about the work or would like to come along and take part, please call the Partnership on 01372 743783. It doesn't have to be for the full three days - you could spend just an hour or one session with us. Tea and coffee will be supplied, and we provide all the tools and instruction. The meeting point is the Thames Ditton Golf Club car park, by the Scilly Isles, Portsmouth Road, Esher.
