A Frost Filled Day

Tuesday, November 29th 2016

The amount of work the team seemed to get through was fantastic, the day had an up-lifting feel from the start.

We were working on the Wetland for much of the morning finishing off the raking which kept us all fairly warm.

Even the Pillwort was touched by the morning chill.

The work was fairly physical as we dragged bags of rakings from the sun kissed bank where we hope the strimming will help the Primroses and Bluebells; much of this work was done by Eddie.

After lunch we headed down to Risedale Beck to clear up the mess from various work days, as well as having a fallen tree trunk across the Beck to clear.

While we beavered on with the work by the Beck, two Johns and Bob completed various jobs in the workshop.

The frost hung around for most of the day, and refroze as the sun started to dip, leaving an early festive feel.

The sun was dipping on the horizon as we picked up the tools and headed back to the workshop before starting the end of day jobs.

Thank you to all our volunteers today, and the Dales School for a great work day.
