Variety is the Spice of Life

Tuesday, January 12th 2016

A rare treat, a dry day, with the added bonus of some sunshine welcomed our volunteers this morning.  Split into 3 groups,  the largest of which headed off into the woodland to do some clearing up, whilst a team of two went to the Wetland to do some strimming of Rushes and Grasses. A third party returned to the island behind the scrapes to cut back more Willow and burn the brash.


The woodland group finished their task by lunchtime, so in the afternoon they filled in the potholes in the drive, which may just be timely, ahead of the predicted frost and ice.


Thank you to everyone who came out today, your hard work is appreciated. It was a very successful and enjoyable day.
