Curry and cake (and lots of work!)

Saturday, November 5th 2016

Today was the second of our Winter Work Days. We had over 30 volunteers (of all ages!) to help us and together we made a big difference in a short time. Thank you to all those who turned up and mucked in.

Today’s task was clearing and thinning along Risedale Beck. This area of the reserve features an outstanding display of primroses and bluebells in the spring, but over recent years the Beck and adjacent bank have become increasingly overgrown diminishing this yearly spectacle.

Everyone assisted with the work, according to their size and capabilities. 

We were fuelled through the day by curry, cake and numerous cups of tea!

A special thanks must go to those who helped with refreshments and (crucially!) washed up afterward.

And of course there was the customary bonfire which was even seasonally appropriate!

This blog was guest written by volunteer Peter B. Our next Winter Work Day is Saturday 3rd December - book your place through our events page.
