FRIENDS OF TIDE MILLS MAY MEETING AND CLEAN-UP
May 16 2016.
Jim Skinner reports:
19 Friends of Tide Mills completed their May, meeting yesterday. It was also National Mills Day which hopefully enabled more visitors than normal to learn about our little group.
We collected 13 sacks of rubbish this time, plus a few larger items. We are still finding litter left over from the winter, but continue to make progress in clearing it. Many thanks again to all who help us in this effort.
The vegetated shingle plants are now starting to emerge and in a few weeks they will be in full flower which transforms the whole area magnificently.
Our Ringed Plover nesting signs for this year's breeding season remain in place and these can be seen just to the Seaford side of the old village and close to the tidal lagoon. As always we respectfully ask that disturbance within this area is minimised during the mating and fledging season March to July. We will recover the signs in August.
Our next meeting is taking place on Sunday the 19th of June, 10 til 12, meeting at the old village beach waymarker. All are very welcome to come along, no matter how much time can be spared - the more we are the quicker it will be to get Tide Mills back to how we all like to see it.
