Work continues along the Beck

Tuesday, January 21st 2014

Our regular team of Tuesday volunteers were out in force today. The group of 15 continued work on the Hazel coppice along Risedale Beck.

It was tough going working on the steep and slippery slopes but we managed to open up another large section and are about half way to completing the whole bank.

With a good frost overnight the fire was a bit slow to start but once it got going we were able to burn all of the brash, leaving some of the larger logs in neat piles to be used by bugs and insects.

 

Downstream from the volunteers Simon continued to work on strengthening the banks of the beck and re-enforcing the stanchions under one of the bridges.

Thank you everyone for a fantastic team effort, we achieved a lot today!
