Team Tuesday

Tuesday, October 21st 2014

In the coppice block, sheltered from the high winds, volunteers worked hard all day cutting back another large area of Silver Birch, Gorse and willow.

Four volunteers from the EE offices in Darlington joined us for the day as part of their charity programme. After a brief introduction to coppicing they quickly got stuck in and enjoyed their day away from the office.

With blue skies a few of the volunteers enjoyed a lunch out, making the most of the autumn sun.

By the afternoon large piles of brash had built up and we concentrated on cutting this down to size before adding it to the bonfire.

Thank you to everyone for the effort they have put in so far, we have made a very good start to the winter work over the last fortnight.
