First Worky Day

Sunday, October 7th 2012

What a glorious day!  Sun and warm and dry!  The task was the removal of the hedge on the heath.   This is the 'before' photograph that we like to take and keep for the records.

The hedge on the heath

On Friday, Sophie and Adam felled the trees in readiness for Saturday morning..

The fire was started and soon brash was being cut ready to be burnt.

Everyone was busy.

This photograph was taken from a high vantage point , the back of the trailer!  You can see that over half of the hedgeline has been cleared.  And what a difference it has made.

Working hard

By the end of the day the heath was open. This is the 'after' photograph, as we left this evening.

Before we all returned to the porta-cabin for tea and cakes a group photograph was lined up.  Adam set the timer on the camera and sprinted through the heather to be included in the photograph.

A big thank you to everyone who helped today.

What a great day, out in the fresh air, smelling of bonfire smoke and getting to know some really lovely people.  A fantastic family occasion and so welcoming.  The curry lunch was very welcome, bettered only by the rocky road cake for tea. It was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday; I can’t recommend it enough to anyone who wants to give a bit back and have some fun at the same time. Our boys (aged 7 and 9) just didn’t want to leave.
