Many Hands Make Light Work

Friday, February 1st 2013

A group of five soliders from the Queen's Division at the Infantry Training Centre came along to lend a hand in the woodland.  They spent the day helping to remove some diseased Sycamore trees in preparation for the area to be replanted later this year.

The regular Thursday volunteers were hard at work in the workshop building a duck nesting raft.  We are hoping that this will be finished and then floated out onto the lake next week.

Pond maintenance work along Risedale Beck and through the Scrapes is being carried out tomorrow so please be aware of this if you are visiting.
