First Time this Year

Tuesday, April 19th 2016

You could tell where the volunteers were working today by the pile of clothes draped over trees, rails and posts.

Hanging clothes

For the first time this year it was warm enough for layers to be removed.

It has been said numerous times before how hard the volunteers work, but everytime I caught up with them they were eating and resting!

Seriously  though a great deal of work was completed today.  Wood that had been felled was cleared and tidied away.  The ever growing Bramble stems were trimmed around the red route. Some boards were prepared for the back garden to save the bird ringers becoming covered in mud. A step down to one of the CES net rides was repaired.  The boardwalks were given a make over, having the moss cleared from the edges and ensuring that all the non-slip pieces were fixed firmly in place.  Inside the field centre the work did not stop as admin work dealing with the Adopt a Box scheme was continued.  Displays were changed and the store room was tidied.  Not a bad day at all - thank you so much for all your hard work and the stickies that Ann brought in, which were enjoyed by all.
