At last I can tell you now its been confirmed, starting on the first Wednesday in November Scarborough Conservation Volunteers will be working in conjunction with Scarborough Borough Council and English Heritage at Scarborough Castle. The ConVols will be taking a lead in the removal of the self seeded Sycamore Trees that have grown up along the castle walls. The trees are been removed, to help safeguard the fabric of the walls, bring back the castle into view from below and increase the level of security inside the Castle grounds. Initially the ConVols will be on site for the first two Wednesdays in November then returning regularly until the task is finished.
We are two different groups of volunteers ,the SCV work all over the Scarborough aria doing a variety of tasks in conjunction with SBC we also are the lease holders on around 15 acres of meadow ,we only have 99 years to sort it out . The SWAG group are at the moment concentrating on Raincliffe Woods & forge Valley ,they meet on the first Sunday of the month to carry out tasks and have events in the woodland . and hope to see you there Ron Baxter Chair
