Back on the Heath

Thursday, September 17th 2015

Today our volunteers were once again back on the Heath. Although this task must seem endless to some, we really are making good progress and most of the area now looks more like a Heath and less like scrubby Woodland. This picture shows what an area looks like before it has been cleared:

And this one shows one that has been cleared:

It has been good to see lots of the shrubs being dug out by the roots this year instead of just being cut off as this should mean they do not return next year. It was calm enough today to have another fire and we managed to burn everything we had cut today, as well as the pile that was left over from Tuesday.

Many thanks to everyone who helped out today.
