A Break in the Weather

Tuesday, December 29th 2015

Today some of our regular volunteers took advantage of some clear skies and sunshine, joining us to work off a bit of the Christmas excess. We started the day by clearing up some windblown Hawthorn trees in last year’s coppice block.

The volunteers got stuck into the task with their usual gusto and made short work of the job.

The brash was transported to a fire site and burnt along with the Silver Birch we removed on the Tree Popper demonstration day before Christmas.

After lunch Brian took us on walk around the green route pointing out some of the many varieties of fungus found at Foxglove.

It was a really nice day catching up on what everyone got up to over Christmas and doing some valuable work. Thank you to all of you who came along to help.
