What a Transformation!

Tuesday, November 18th 2014

Nineteen volunteers joined us in the Scrapes today to continue working on the coppice block. We also started work thinning some of the Hawthorn from the cleared area. In no time at all the fire was roaring and the site was a hive of activity. Pupils from the Dales School also helped out during the morning, learning new skills as they worked alongside our volunteers.

These two photos, taken from the same point, highlight the transformation that has taken place alongside the scrapes thanks to an astounding effort from all those involved.

This picture was taken on October 14 as we started work.

This picture was taken today as work continued.

The coppicing has been done to a high standard; very much a reflection of the hard work from our dedicated team of volunteers. While there is still a large area to complete we have now made a fantastic start to our winter work - thank you all for the efforts you have put in today and over the past month.
