MAYFORD MEADOWS & HOE STREAM

 

Situated in the heart of Mayford lies the Mayford meadows and the Hoe Stream.

These are vital assets to the village, providing habitat and potential habitat for flora, fauna and vital species such as the declining Water Vole.

The Mayford meadows are largely unmanaged by our council and other organizations and unfortunately left to grow out of control. Invasive species such as Himalayan Balsam have taken root in the meadows and have become a serious issue.

Members of the Mayford Village Society have been arranging regular 'Balsam Bashes' to tackle this problem.

Thanks to a dedicated few who cut the grass and bash the balsam, the meadows are a comfortable place to visit.

The Mayford Village Society is trying to create an environment where the village can coexist with nature.

We would like to see the return of the Water Voles that seem to have been wiped out by the mink and are considered extinct in Surrey.

We would like to see better water quality not affected by road pollution so species such as the Water Vole, Wild Brown trout, and even the Otter can return to their rightful homes.

 

Together we can make it happen!
