Strimming and Mowing

Thursday, September 10th 2015

It was a hot and sunny day at Foxglove. If it wasn’t for the ever-increasing number of golden yellow leaves appearing on some of the trees, we could have convinced ourselves it was still summer. The volunteers were busy with mowers and strimmers today. John strimmed the edges of the hay meadow (only the edges, we didn’t make him do the whole field!).

Meanwhile Tony and Mike and Stacey, armed with mowers, rakes, shears and brushes, set to work mowing net rides, removing cobwebs and tidying up the garden and the area in front of the Field Centre.

By the end of the day the place looked very smart indeed.

Thanks to all of our volunteers who worked hard today.
