Hi Friends of Knocklofty,

With the continued dry weather, the bracken and grasses are wilting, and it is easier to see the green gorse, so we did some roving weeding in areas KR 18 and 26.

KR 26 is exposed to residential neighbours, and we talked about introduced plants like sticky wattle, Acacia howitii, cotoneaster and pittosporum, and how to identify their young plants.

At our annual planning meeting in January,  we discussed the ‘for sale’ sign at 193 Forest Rd.  It was agreed that we would approach the CoH and make a case for the council to buy it and add it to Knocklofty Reserve. Bruce C. offered to write the letter, and thanks to his hard work, the attachment below was sent to the council this week.
