In the Woods

Thursday, May 4th 2017

A slightly smaller team joined us for Thursday volunteering today (this week appears a popular time for holidays!) - thank you to all who came to help us and we hope those who are elsewhere are having a good time. There were activities around the Field Centre and workshop, including mowing the lawn, continuing with new wood preservative on our marker posts and some servicing of our mowers and strimmers. 

However, most of the activity today was taking place beyond Risedale Beck up in the conifer woodland on the green route. Here we defined the edges of one of the more unclear and meandering paths:

John did repairs to one of the boardwalks (here measuring for new edging, which we hope to get in place soon).

We also finished using slices of a wind-blown grand fir to mark another section of the route...

...we rather like it!
