Auckland Way - Community Conservation

This Sunday (4th August), Durham County Council have organised a two hour session (10am-12pm) to help clean up Auckland Way (scroll to table at the bottom of page).

It isn't litter that the council are targeting, but rosebay willowherb, which they describe as an invasive plant. They hope to improve the nearby wild-flower meadow.

As I travel along Auckland Way on my bicycle commute, I think I should go along and help out. The path is maintained by the council and I don't do much in return - so this is the least I can do.

Here is the poster found from the council website, which has been stapled to numerous fences along the path:
