A Lend-a-Hand Day

Monday, July 25th 2016

We started the week on a very positive note, we had a cool breeze, the horse flies were not biting and CEMEX quarry from Catterick were coming in to 'Lend-A-Hand' with various jobs on the reserve. You may remember Cemex from a similar day back in May, when they donated stones and labour for our Stone Circle on the Moorland. Today they lent-a-hand on the same site bashing Bracken around the stones, and generally around the Moorland.

To break the day up we spent time doing path repairs by the nursery

Then finished the day near the Heathland tree popping Birch, Gorse and Hawthorn. The team's efforts cleared an over grown area exposing Heather, and Oak saplings, and hopefully preventing more pioneering plant growth on the heath.

Thank you to the CEMEX team for the hard work today, and we hope to see them back another day.
