Catha's Seat - planting for the hive of activity

Spring has sprung up at Catha's Seat! 

Friends and contributors to Catha's Seat, Piers and Jadie who work for Natural England and the Woodland Trust respectively have created a bee-licious offering, planting the following to reinstate the hedge / tree corridor behind the seats:


·       Guelder Rose – Viburnum opulus
·       Wayfaring Tree – Viburnum lantana
·       Whitebeam – Sorbus aria
·       Wild Rose
·       Apple Queen Cox
·       Apple – Sunrise
·       Cherry – Sweeheart

Many thanks to them for this and for humping the plants up there from the A28 in a wheelbarrow! I look forward to sitting up there in the Autumn enjoying the most locally sourced fruit I can find! 

....and it's not just the bees, Catha's Seat is already a hive of activity with cyclists and walkers. If you haven't visited yet, what are you waiting for!!?


Shelia Webb, inspiration for Catha's Seat and avid supporter throughout the project, takes her first visit with a small group, only to find that there is a hive of activity at their destination!!
Sheila was joined by Rachel, local handcyclist and cycle campaigners from Cambridge "You Can Bike Too" - check them out on twitter (@youcanbike2) [while you are on twitter why not follow @cathasseat as well!

Phil Rutt from ARC Creative Design (the man who drew the Artist's Impression for Catha's Seat as well as many other things) visits Catha's Seat with his wife for a picnic. They went from Hythe to Wye, then to Catha's Seat for lunch, onto Chartham and then followed the old route 18 back to Sole Street across Stone Street to Stelling Minnis and back to Hythe.
