Twelve new calves were on show which will go to Farthing Downs and New Hill in the spring. Children made arts and crafts, and sat on the tractor, while rangers and volunteers talked about how the commons are managed. Upcoming events include:

  • 8 April: Clean for the Common: volunteers help clean their local common.
