In line with Government guidance to help us stay safe, the AONB Team, along with other local organisations, clubs & societies, has cancelled or postponed all face-to-face events, volunteering activities, and nature and wellbeing group activities for the foreseeable future. We very much look forward to the day when we can once again extend a warm Arnside & Silverdale AONB welcome to you all.
Annual Hedgelaying Competition
Hedgerows are a characteristic feature of the landscape and whilst their primary function is to enclose land and livestock, provide shelter for crops and animals and prevent soil erosion, they are also very important for wildlife.
To help, support and encourage the retention of the skills necessary to look after our hedgerows, the AONB hosts an annual hedgelaying competition, the first of the winter’s grand-prix competitions of the Lancashire & Westmorland Hedgelaying Association.
Look out for the competitors in action today just outside Arnside on the B5282.
Parking is limited, but everyone is welcome to come and watch.
