Wet and Wild

Tuesday, November 20th 2012

Foxglove is always a hive of activity on a Tuesday with many volunteers lending a hand in all weathers. Some volunteers joined in with the construction of the CPRE funded dry stone wall today.

Walling in the rain

This has been a fantastic opportunity for Foxglove volunteers to learn new skills and we are grateful to the members of the Leyburn branch of the DSWA for sharing their expertise and knowledge.


The feature is really taking shape now and looks very professional.

Meanwhile, in the Scrapes area, volunteers helped to improve this wetland habitat by removing invasive Gorse and Silver Birch.

The Mean Mean Gorse Machine!

Several large Silver Birch were felled with a bow saw!


The world was put to rights back at the bonfire!

Twisted Fire Starters!

Students from the Dales School helped to drag brash to the fire.

This was great fun and good exercise too.

Helping out

All in all, a huge amount of work has been achieved in miserable weather conditions too.Thank you everyone for your help and support on a soggy wet day!
