February Winter Worky Day

Saturday, February 7th 2015

Over thirty volunteers joined us on the reserve today for the fifth Winter Worky Day of the season. The work site was only a stone’s throw from the Field Centre, where we worked on the last small section of willow coppicing and pollarding along one of the net rides.

Many ‘regulars’ joined us today as well as some first time volunteers who got stuck in and enjoyed learning new skills.

The junior work team was also out in force; armed with their pruning saws and loppers they cleared several willow stools and helped to keep the fire going.

After a morning’s hard work everyone was rewarded with a tasty curry, and to top it off a selection of homemade cakes made by our volunteers – thank you to everyone who contributed to the delicious spread.

Much of the afternoon was spent clearing the huge amount of cuttings from earlier in the day.

Thank you to everyone who has helped out, it has been a very enjoyable and productive day out in the fresh air with such good company.
