January Winter Worky Day

Saturday, January 4th 2014

Thirty five volunteers turned up this morning to help out with some habitat improvement work at the far end of the woodland. 

A densely shaded and damp area of Hawthorn has been thinned, allowing more light and air to penetrate the canopy, helping dry the saturated ground and promote a richer ground flora.  Soon the fire was burning well to cope with all the brash.

An amazing amount of work was done completely transforming this area; everyone definitely deserved their curry at lunchtime!

Thank you again to everyone for you hard work today.  The next winter worky day is on Saturday 8th February, please get in touch with Adam if you would like to book a place.
