Balsam Bashing 2024

It’s that time of year again, and with all the high water events we’ve had this last few months, there’s plenty of balsam coming through. We’re going to start pulling at the beginning of June and carry on until it goes to seed! Keep an eye on this page as extra sessions will be added as we go. Last updated 06/06/24

Please come ready to defy the nettles! Long sleeves and trousers plus gardening gloves.

It would be appreciated if you could tell the leader you are coming.
