Taking care of the Slopes

On Kingswear the Northern Slopes Greengym group have joined forces with Goodgym (runners that combine getting fit with doing good) to clear the benches of litter and keep the grass down so more people can enjoy picnics there.

Elsewhere, as a result of information from NSI, tents and detritus left on the Bommie have been removed. NSI are also monitoring grassland areas on Kingswear which are beginning to scrub over. There has been debate on the NSI Facebook about a residents addition of trees and rock border beyond garden boundaries onto the Northern Slopes. Perspectives on this ‘addition’ have varied from seeing it as cared for to an encroachment on the nature reserve. This work had already been reported to the council who have yet to comment.
