Two Jobs Well Done

Tuesday, September 18th 2018

Following on from yesterday, and given the rain this morning, the Tuesday volunteer group set about bagging up the chaff in the Workshop so that it could be taken down to the Seed Store once the rain had stopped.  The new white woven bags have proved a real bonus and have made the whole job a lot easier.

The initial aim was to fill enough for a couple of trailer loads to be taken down.  However, the rain cleared quicker than forecast so it was logical to take the first load down and, by the time the quad bike and trailer were back at the Workshop, another set of bags was ready to be loaded on. 

By the end of the morning over 40 bags had been filled, transported and stacked in the Seed Store, so very much a job well done with the chaff in dry conditions and the Workshop is clear again.  We obviously missed a little bit as there was a Field Vole busily picking through some chaff on the floor when we got back.

In the afternoon the team made their way over to the steps on the Green Route in the Risedale Beck Conifer Woodland.  Rotting wood was stripped from the steps here and replaced with new lengths of timber and then the steps were back-filled.  A good job well done again, so thanks to John, Peter, Eddie, Brian and Colin for their hard work today.
