Winter Worky Day

Saturday, February 6th 2016

There was a good turn out despite the inclement weather, with over 30 people attending for all or part of the day.

Splitting the volunteers into two groups, one party headed out to do some tree planting in the woodland area behind the lake. 50 bare rooted Larch saplings were planted with tree tubes and stakes. February is the best month for tree planting, because the roots are not sat in cold soil for too long, as spring approaches and the soil warms up.

By lunchtime the 50 trees were in, so in the afternoon they joined the other party who were taking down leggy Hawthorn trees up on the green route. All fodder for a bonfire. With all the heat generated from the sawing of wood, combined with the rain, there was visible ‘steam’ coming off the hard working volunteers.

Lunch was another tasty curry with trimmings and lots of lovely homemade cakes courtesy of our fabulous baker Ann.


Thank you all for turning out on such an un-inviting day, your hard work and enthusiasm are much appreciated.
