The Holly and the Ivy

Thursday, December 10th 2015

A crisp, bright day awaited our small group of volunteers and a pleasant first task, this was to go out onto the reserve and collect some Willow, Holly, Ivy and Pine cones, in readiness for our Christmas wreath making workshop tomorrow.


In the afternoon,we set out to fill the potholes in the drive, starting right outside the field centre, working like a mini-chain gang we sang our way to the end of the drive, sweeping the water out, filling them in and then tamping down the gravel.  Needless to say the ride back with the trailer was much smoother!

Thank you all who came out today, as always your hard work and company are much appreciated.
