What a busy day

Wednesday, November 5th 2014

Yesterday was a very busy day at Foxglove. We had a fantastic turn out with twenty-four volunteers here in a number of capacities. The main job for the day was the removal of Gorse and Silver Birch from an area along the access track.

With such a large number of hard working volunteers we were able to get a fantastic amount removed and transported to the fire site on the car park. The Dales School also pitched in and did a great job dragging brash for us.

As a little reward for all the volunteers hard work we had a lunch cooked on the fire. Felicity, Gordon and Anne created some lovely treats and we all got tucked into jacket potatoes, stuffed and garlic mushrooms, twister dough, parkin, toasted tea cakes, stuffed apples and a few toasted marshmallows.

At the end of the day just as the light started to fade we had the guys from Big Sheep Little Cow come collect the Dexters from the Wetland. Much to our surprise (they are obviously professional cow herders unlike us) they managed to round them up and transport them away for another year.

There was real buzz around the reserve all day with lots of jokes, smiles and hard work and we would like to thank everybody who contributed to such a fantastic day.

Finally we would like to thank Garth (who has at last managed to move house) for all his hard work over the years. Your smiling face and dedication to Foxglove will definitely be missed and we will be happy to welcome you back anytime you can make it!
