Foxglove goes to Town

Thursday, June 8th 2017

Today being Thursday was a Volunteer day. However, it was a day with a difference. Today was the Foxglove Covert Coffee Morning in Richmond Town Hall. This involved quite a lot of organisation by our volunteers beforehand, who delivered an excellent coffee morning with raffle, tombola, tea and coffee, cakes, bric-a-brac, and stalls. The event was well attended, despite being a very wet day! Here is “Team Cappuccino” who manned the stalls, washed cups, made tea and gave us their support.

Volunteers who were not involved with the coffee morning turned up at the reserve to work in the rain. Because of the weather, the tree branches along the entrance track were laden with water and hanging down to car height in the road. This meant loppers were required to prune back all the overhanging branches to stop them damaging cars. Jonathan found a novel way of squashing the vegetation to fit more into the trailer.

Meanwhile, Stuart filled the hoppers and cleaned up the seed around them that had been scattered by the birds. Elsewhere, more of the trail marker posts were brought back into the workshop for repair and repainting.

We are very grateful to all those who put so much effort into the coffee morning to make it a success today.
