Wilding Wimborne

Asian Hornet Week

N.B.  Dates and details for 2023 TBC

This hornet could decimate our pollinators including our honeybees so it is important to have everyone actively looking for it.. 

This is the time of year when Asian hornets start hawking honeybees at hive entrances. Autumn is typically when nests are revealed as a result of leaf fall from trees and bushes and this is the last chance we will have to prevent the emergence of new Asian hornet queens

650 Saplings planted in Wimborne SANGs

This winter by the end of March,  Trees for Wimborne, a subgroup of Wilding Wimborne, will have planted 650 trees in the Dogdean and Stourview SANGs of Wimborne.  Most were provided by the Woodland Trust, some bought thanks to funding by Dorset Council and the Dorset Community Foundation and some provided by individuals. Then, over the winter, fifty or so volunteers have prepared the ground, planted and continued to care for the saplings, so furthering Trees for Wimborne’s vision for increasing the tree cover in the area.
