A Helping Hand

Wednesday, January 23rd 2013

Pollarding and coppicing is the main focus this week as the work in this section of willow carr is nearing completion.

Two volunteers from the Queen's Division at the Infantry Training Centre (ITC) lent a hand today.

Some regular volunteers also put in a few extra hours to help with clearing the brash. All of this help is appreciated.
