Rock ‘n’ Roll

Tuesday, February 23rd 2016

A beautiful, clear and sunny day greeted the volunteers this morning. There was just a slight breeze out on the wetland as we raked up the grass and rushes that Ken and Eddie have been cutting over the past few weeks, they finished the last section off this morning whilst the volunteers raked around them.

There was more digger action at Foxglove this afternoon too, a few days ago one of the dams on the bottom cascading pool had burst and the water level had dropped dramatically. Luckily, Biker contractors came to the rescue and lifted the large boulders and rocks back into place and sealed it with clay and soil. In the hour or so we were down there the water had already risen several inches, so hopefully by tomorrow there will a cascade once more.

Thank you to everyone who came and helped today.
