Monday Evening Balsam Bash

Aug 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Get out your waders for the final Monday Evening Balsam Bash of this season.

On Monday 20 August, join our River Steward, Simon for evening of Himalayan balsam bashing* and litter picking.

Himalayan balsam is an invasive, non-native plant species that spreads rapidly and blocks sunlight from native wild plants. We’re aiming to get rid of the Himalayan balsam from our catchment area, which will encourage a more diverse environment for wildlife.

This week we’re meeting over the bridge at Sands Recreation Ground, Holmfirth, HD9 3TP

As we’re wading in the river, we have to limit places for health and safety reasons. If you’re interested in coming along though, please email or phone Simon to register your interest:

Call 07532 793458 or email

*Please note these tasks will involve wading in the river.
