A Busy Day at Foxglove

Tuesday, June 21st 2016

Today at Foxglove was busy. As usual on a Tuesday the volunteers arrived in good numbers. The grass and trees have been growing well over the last few weeks so there was a lot of gardening, mowing, strimming and cutting back to be done. Our work experience student Joe quickly picked up what needed to be done and got stuck in too.

By the middle of the afternoon, all of the paths were neatly mowed and everything looked very tidy.

Some of the other volunteers filled the bird feeders, painted the Field Centre where the paint had started peeling off, did some work on the wormery, cleaned the solar panels and did a butterfly survey.

Meanwhile, the Dales School, who come to us regularly, but had been away for a few weeks, enjoyed a pond dipping session.

They proved to be very adept at catching Tadpoles!

It has been a busy day today- thanks very much indeed to everyone who came to help out today.
