Storm damage cleared

Mail from to Ian Bushell 19.02.2022:

Good morning,
Julie Newblé has sent me pictures of a conifer blown down near the main entrance on the Lambrok Meadow side. She says that’s the only damage on the main path. Over to you!

Mail from Ian Bushell to

Thanks for the heads-up. I contacted Clive and we arranged to meet and assess at 2pm.  In fact it was two Leylandiis, not one, and quite a tangle.  It took us nearly three hours with some help from Simon’s parents.
There were lots of people using the park but it was strange in that we seemed to be invisible; people walking past without any acknowledgement.
I’ll let Ali and Rich know what we have done and that there is no danger to the public.


Mail from Clive Knight to

Ian will have sent more pictures and words but this is what we were presented with (image 1) when we went to the reserve to look at the fallen tree Julie had reported. It took us well over two hours of cutting to clear the path.

Well done you!

  1. Sorry for not realising it was more than one tree, but at the time I took the photo its was still pretty windy and felt it unsafe to get too close. Hopefully no more trees fall

    1. Heavens Julie! Nobody was expecting you to go counting fallen trees in the middle of the worst storm since 1987. Thanks for letting us know there had been damage; the sooner we know, the sooner we can fix it.

  2. Thank you so much for your hard work. Especially in such dreadful weather. It really was appreciated as I went for my 5K run around the park this morning🤗👍🏻

  3. Thank you all for your effort to clear the fallen trees in what was still inclement weather. Appreciated by all at Southwick Country parkrun
