Wreaths and Winter Work

Monday, December 5th 2016

After a busy Worky Day on the Saturday we were now working with some of the willow the team had cut to make Christmas wreaths. On arrival the reserve was dusted with ice giving it a festive feel which seemed to add to the event.   

This is the start of our Christmas activities building up towards the actual day. The popularity of these events is not surprising and although a few events are now fully booked (see events page), we decided to put on this extra day to save disappointment.

We had been busy collecting the various willow and birch to form the main structure but also wheelbarrow loads of Ivy, Spruce, Holly plus Rosehip, Cotoneaster, etc. to ensure a mixed colour for the wreaths.


Once the basics were explained the team produced some fantastic wreaths to take home.

 After lunch we got onto more practical tasks such as dealing with the delivery of bird seed,

 Then to finish off we moved on to the outdoor work and continued chipping the various stems we had cleared on Saturday.

All-in-all a pretty varied and busy day on the reserve!
