Hiya friends,

Grateful for some rainfall over the last week here on Bidston Hill. The sandstone ridge here means that there's not a lot of top soil and the hill dries out very quickly. Forest fires are a common occurence here, but we continue to see new life emerge.

The environment should be at the forefront of everyone's agenda right now, and we're trying to navigate this within a very old and Listed building. All help and suggestions welcomed - plus a little high-five to the lovely folk at Friends of Bidston Hill, a volunteer forestry group that maintains the hill and meet up for Friday Group every Friday morning. Join them!

Please read through the text below to find out what we're up to
