Volunteers Step Up

Tuesday, November 25th 2014

Today we split into two groups to complete different tasks around the reserve. Adam took a willing team down to the lake hide to tackle the problem of the very slippery steps that lead to the top hide. They worked diligently all morning and part of the afternoon attaching a wire covering to create a non-slip surface.

The other team of volunteers and Matt continued the coppicing effort. This morning we concentrated on a section across the other side of the net ride from the main block. We had envisaged that this would take us most of the day however the volunteers cracked on and got it done by lunch time.

It is sometimes difficult for us to assess exactly how much has been done in a day as the block is so large. However this morning gave us a clear indication of how much work the team of volunteers get through and we are very impressed to say the least. So once again thank you for all your hard work!
