The Best Laid Plans….

Monday, December 18th 2017

Arriving at Foxglove this morning, it became almost immediately apparent that plans for the day would have to be rearranged when it became obvious that there was no electricity for the main gate.  Thanks must go the many people who helped track down the source of the problem, including those who were on holiday and came in straight away to work hard on getting the gate back into action.  Things were not delayed too badly, with the most important jobs of checking the sheep and ponies in the freezing conditions being done quite quickly.

It soon beame clear that today was going to be a lot warmer so that, while the pools on the wetland remained frozen, it was turning into a pleasant day.  It did give us time to move the quad bike and trailer around to the stone pile before the ground softened so that we could minimise any damage that may be caused.  The rest of the day has been spent moving stone nearer to the worksite for tomorrow so that the volunteers can make a start on restoring the path surface through the moorland.

Over the last couple of days, Ian has also been working on tidying the workshop, moving some items to be stored elsewhere, making it a lot easier to get to tools and equipment.  There is still a lot of work to do here but this really is a big improvement and will make getting started on work each morning a lot better.
