FRIENDS OF TIDE MILLS MONTHLY CLEAN-UP AND REPORT
July 19 2016.
Jim Skinner writes:
Fifteen Friends of Tide Mills completed their July clean-up and meeting on Sunday. We collected just six sacks worth of rubbish this time, plus a few larger items, which is very heartening for all of us.
As always we do thank all visitors who help us in this effort, who both take home their own litter and in picking up extra items as well.
The vegetated shingle plants continue to flower, which transforms the whole area magnificently.The birds are in full song and hopefully are enjoying a very successful breeding season.
Our Ringed Plover nesting signs for this year's breeding season remain in place. 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 21st of August, 10.00am til 12, meeting at the old village beach road waymarker. We will be having our annual Summer Picnic after the clean-up, which is always very much looked forward to.
We always welcome new members to our friendly little band, no matter how much time can be spared- the more we are the easier it is to ensure Tide Mills stays how we all like to see it.
