A Hunk Hunk o’ Burning Brash

Tuesday, January 19th 2016

Another dry day, graced briefly by the sun in the afternoon. A good day for bonfires!
The majority of the volunteers set to work on the brash from recently felled trees in the plantation area near the car park. They were joined later on by the Dales School, who love this kind of task.

Once again, a small party walked the plank over to the island, behind the scrapes, to finish off cutting back Willow and very leggy Wild Rose.

The island looks very different to what it did a few weeks ago, although it looks a tad bare just now, in a few weeks it will be much more colourful, evidence of new growth was seen all over. Roll on Spring!

Thank you to everyone who helped out, it was an enjoyable day and a lot of work was achieved.
