A Premier Team

Thursday, September 3rd 2015

Today our usual group of Thursday volunteers had some extra help. The newly formed team of staff from the recently completed Premier Inn at Catterick Garrison came to help out on the reserve. This gave them the chance to get to know each other as part of a team building week, whilst giving something back to the community in the form of charity work.

Today’s task was clearing vegetation from the heath; a task everyone set to work at with enthusiasm despite the odd passing shower. As it wasn’t too windy we were able to have a fire and burn everything we cut down. By the end of the day, the area of heath we were working on was looking vastly better.

The  work on our entrance track was completed this afternoon so access to the reserve will be back to normal from tomorrow.

We would like to thank the team from Premier Inn who had a number of volunteer opportunities available, but chose to come and support us at Foxglove. I have no doubt that when the Premier Inn opens, it will be in good hands! We would also like to thank our usual volunteers for their continued support.
