Green Works

Thursday, February 11th 2016

It’s been a busy day at Foxglove, with a variety of tasks going on. A couple of the volunteers started off planting the last 10 remaining Larch saplings in the plantation block behind the lake.

Not far away were the other members of the group, who worked on re-laying the flags underneath the bird feeders.

and Ta Da, all finished!

After lunch, they all headed up onto the woodland trail to sort out the route waymarking system, which needed making clearer, as some of the logs outlining the route had drifted.
Whilst the volunteers were doing this, our contractor Willie Metcalfe was busy down in Risedale Beck, with his mini-digger. He has removed obstructions, such as a large tree, which could have become problematic if it got swept further downstream. Also he has moved stones to help improve the flow of the beck and ‘shored up’ some of the banks that are prone to erosion.


Well done volunteers, thanks for all your hard work today.
