All systems go!

Tuesday, April 29th 2014

Today's volunteers have made the most of a wonderfully sunny day.

We've had lots of little jobs to do and so have had several teams completing the different tasks around the reserve.

One group worked on the path near the wetland, straightening up and replacing the kickboards along the path.

Once the wood had been replaced we used our compactor to compound the loose surface.

Another small (but mighty!) team continued with the painting of the Heathland fence.

Bob got a little bit carried away and poor Clemmie nearly ended up with a new coat!

With Ken and Eddie tackling the never-ending strimming one final team made good use of the dry spell and managed to burn a load of the reed which was cut over the winter, a hot job on a day like today!

Thank you to everyone for your hard work and enjoyable company.
