What’s invading your rivers?

Have you seen an “space invader” in your river? Have you heard of non native invasive species? Join Chloe next Wednesday evening for a free online workshop to learn more.

Our rivers, waterways and river banks are under attack by “space invaders” that threaten to disrupt and damage our rivers and green spaces.  These invaders – Floating Pennywort, Himalayan Balsam, Giant Hogweed, and Japanese Knotweed – are non-native invasive species (NNIS) which can significantly impact plant biodiversity, human health, and economic interests.

Join us for a free online workshop exploring each species covering their identification techniques, impacts on the natural ecosystem and how you can help. The workshop will be held online via Zoom and a link will be sent out prior to the workshop beginning.

UK Power Networks work in Eastcote

UKPN are working on the HS2 power supply route at the Deane Croft Road/Field End Road/Meadow Way junction from 20th August.

The plan is to start in Meadow Way and move on to Deane Croft Road. It is planned for the trench works to be on the south side of both roads, however as always if there are any changes due to unknown obstructions they may have to change this whilst on site.

They will cross the junction and extend 15m along Meadow Way and Deane Croft Road to ensure that when they come back to do the rest of the route, the traffic at the junction is affected as little as possible by the Traffic Management and works.

For more information, please see, UKPN ERA Website or  visit https://hs2inhillingdon.commonplace.is/schemes/proposals/works-in-your-area/details.

Libraries are open

We are advised by Hillingdon Council that the automatic renewal of items has ended as they are now in a position to accept books back in to libraries.

However, the library service is issuing all items for an extended period of 6 weeks at present,
and is not charging overdue fines.

They will review this next month.
