Yes, I was out and about on the common today and there really has been a big effort to cut back the brambles 8). Apparently though they will stop now as the bird nesting season gets underway. Anyone who wants to help maintain the common should know that a group of volunteers meets on the 1st and 3rd saturday of the month around 10am for a couple of hours of upkeep followed by a drink in the Pheasant. Contact Dave Munson/Peter Bugg if you want to know more.

Totally agree with Tim, and Tomski, nice to see this part of the common again, I remember Norcotts as a kid back in the day itís good to see it cleared.  Although I didnít see any members of the Brill common Committee down there, when 30 volunteers gave up their weekend to help clear the area in question. Another 10 years and we wonít have a common to walk on if these brambles are not destroyed and the common managed properly. Keep up the good work.

*The 'alternative group that cleared a large area of North Hills are known as the 'Friends of Brill Common' (FOBC)  They are a group of local people concerned at the alarming loss of common from scrub encroachment and with conservation being it's primary concern.*
