SCYTHING volunteers are wanted to help at an Oxford nature reserve today.

The Wild Oxford team from BBOWT will also be scrub bashing at Chilswell Valley next to Hinksey Heights Golf Course from 10am to 3pm.

Scythes, hot drinks and biscuits will be provided, but helpers are advised to bring sturdy boots, gloves and lunch.
