Preserving Surreys’ Hedgerow Heritage
Hedgerows are vitally important features in the landscape of Surrey, creating a strong sense of place and important habitats for wildlife.
In 2019 R4C was engaged by the Surrey wildlife Trust (SWT) to support the development of a grant application to the National Lottery Heritage Fund that aimed to involve local communities and young people in surveying, planning and better managing this important natural asset.
Due to staff changes SWT had a capacity and expertise gap that we were pleased to be able to fill, drafting both their Activity Plan and Management & Maintenance Plan. Their application has been successful and we are pleased to have been reengaged to be their project evaluators.
