Fedging Your Bets!

Tuesday, February 12th 2013

Brash left over from forestry work was put to good use rather than put on the bonfire. The Tuesday volunteers used it to improve a nearby dead hedge or 'fedge'!

Winter Work

The Silver Birch branches lend themselves beautifully to these structures and some cut Hazel from previous work was used as stakes.

Not only does this make a stunning feature, it will also provide a perfect habitat for some of the woodland birds such as Robin and Wren.

At coffee time, a 'Great Brownie Bake Off' took place as the volunteers judged Sophie and Adam's homemade chocolate brownies!

Brownie Competition

The volunteers were very diplomatic and declared 'eachy peachy' as the results although Anne's famous chocolate whisky cake was also a winner!

Thank you to all involved today and watch this space for next week's bake off (what have we started)? which is going to be a 'flapjack competition'!
