A Day with a Difference

Tuesday, May 9th 2017

Today was rather unusual. Instead of being a usual volunteer day, the Foxglove staff had training courses to attend at Warcop. This meant that most of the regular volunteers were invited to take a day off. The sun shone and it turned into a beautiful day so hopefully they made the most of it!

At Warcop we undertook fire training, learning which fire extinguishers to use for each type of fire and how to operate them. We concluded the course practicing putting out “real” fires. On return to Foxglove with our new knowledge, we were pleased to find that our fire equipment is all as it should be.

Back at Foxglove, a few extra keen volunteers were taken on a guided walk of the reserve by Elizabeth, giving them the chance to learn a bit more detail about the reserve that they put so much effort into maintaining. Eddie did a bit of strimming, Stuart spent some time servicing the loppers and John did some odd jobs. Thanks to those who helped out today in our absence.
