Wetlands Header 3.5



The Rye Brook flows through Ashtead Common, Ashtead Rye Meadows & Leatherhead where it joins the River Mole. Over the years, urban & agricultural development has had a detrimental effect on the Rye Brook, with the result that it supported little wildlife and periodically flooded local houses. By restoring the natural processes such as erosion, the depositing of minerals and the occasional flooding of wetland habitats, we are securing a healthy long term future for both wildlife & people.

You are invited to come and join the volunteers of Ashtead Rye Meadows Wetlands and many other organisations at the River Mole Discovery Day on Sunday 30th September between 12pm and 4pm.

The event takes place on the bank of the River Mole behind the Leisure Centre. You can either access the venue by walking from the town centre on the footpath near Lidl, or park in the Leisure Centre Car Park and walk from there.

We will have the Rye Meadows stand there and you'll be able to view and buy the notelets produced by local artist Cathy Brett. (http://www.cathybrett.co.uk/).

Rye Meadows volunteers will be on hand to explain what we have been doing this year, and how what we do in Ashtead impacts on the Rievr Mole.

We look forward to seeing you there.
