Annual Reviews

Each year we now produce an 'Annual Review' for Friends and Members, which incorporates a summary of our formal Year-end Report, plus what we hope are some interesting highlights of the year in question.

Hedge Planting

On a blustery Wednesday, 5th February, about a dozen volunteers defied the grim weather forecast and responded to our plea for help in planting a new hedge across the South Down.

Just over 2000 plants were on site ready to be planted (290 each of seven species), and we were delighted to be able to get half of these in the ground.

The species used are Field Maple, Hazel, Hawthorn, Spindle, Wild Privet, Dog rose and Guelder Rose. Each was put in with its own stake and rabbit guard. This new hedge will provide a barrier between the sheep paddocks and the footpath along the crop line, and at the same time will provide a useful corridor for birds and invertebrates.

Old Newsletters

Up until 2011 we produced a twice-yearly Newsletter, and you can still download copies of some of these here:

In 2011 the re-designed website was launched, and so the decision was taken to stop producing these Newsletters, and instead to use this website as the main means of communication for news and articles of interest.

This move away from a regular Newsletter meant that more of the Members' and Friends' subscriptions could be spent directly on the costs of upkeep and husbandry on the Down.

We would love every regular visitor to Magog Down to help support its upkeep by becoming a Friend. Read more on our Join Us page, and then complete the application form.
