Thursday, July 27th 2017

Today the Thursday volunteers were busy moving logs, tidying up an area that was used for tree climbing demonstrations during the Foxglove 25 celebrations. The rain poured down heavily on the soggy volunteers (hence the poor quality of all of today's photographs!) as they carted the logs to the trailer.

All the rain meant the ground was far too soft to get the trailer down the net ride to the logs so everything had to be moved by hand. The logs were unloaded at the bullet catcher for future use.

Afterwards they were cut up into useful sized chunks by Jonathan.

By the end of the day the sun was shining beautifully- quite a contrast to the rest of the day, which had prevented us from doing a number of other useful tasks such as mowing and strimming.

Thanks to everyone who worked in the rain today.
