Winter Worky Day Part One

Saturday, November 8th 2014

Today we had the first of our winter worky days for the season. Despite the less than favourable weather forecast we still had an amazing turn out of volunteers. There were lots of regular faces and we were really happy to welcome some new ones as well.

The Task for the day was to continue the work we have been doing in this year’s coppice block. After a quick briefing it was off to work taking out Silver Birch, Gorse and coppicing the willow.

After a little bit of persuasion we got two fire sites going today meaning that the brash didn’t have to be dragged right across the site and that the fires were kept manageable and under easy control all day.

We stopped at lunch time for a well-deserved curry feast and a variety of delicious cake like treats and the obligatory group photo. After lunch the hard work continued and everyone was in high spirits having fun despite the rain putting a slight dampener on things.

We would like to thank everyone who came and contributed today we really appreciate you all coming on your weekends and giving your time to help make Foxglove the place it is we couldn't do it without you. We hope you all had a good day and that we will see you all again on the 6th of December for the next instalment of our winter worky days.
