One Man Went to Mow

Thursday, October 15th 2015

A dull start and a little drizzle did not dampen the spirit of our Thursday volunteers who got stuck into the task of mowing and raking one of our small meadow areas. The edge of the meadow was getting encroached with Willow and Silver Birch so these were felled with handsaws and overhanging Hazel and Hawthorn was pruned back to allow more light onto the meadow area.

The grass was raked up and disposed of away from the path and the brash from the trees dragged further away to a site suitable for a fire. 


The area is transformed, great job everybody, well done and thank you.
