A Big Thank You

Tuesday, December 20th 2016

This was a special Volunteer Tuesday as it is the day we say ‘Thank You’ for all the hard work the volunteers have carried out over the past year. Folk came in clutching food for the lunch party, but not before doing the clearing up jobs we needed to get finished before the holidays begin.

Below, Lesley and gang put the log base in on the path behind the workshop

The finished path with chippings on top…. this method prevents the chippings getting wet and mushy so quickly!

Another team finished clearing brushwood

While on the Wetland Bank more Hazel was being pollarded and coppiced.

We do not like a large amount of footfall in this area due to the risk of damaging young Primrose/Bluebell shoots. Even moving the brushwood we used a human chain to pass the branches down the bank to prevent trapsing up and down.

Come lunchtime we had a large gathering of volunteers who we feel priviledged to work along-side.

Thank you to all that attended today and to all that sadly were unable to make it to the reserve. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from us, the Reserve Managers, and on behalf of the Management Committee.

With food in the belly we set about finishing off a few more jobs, such as broken boardwalks on the chilly, wind blown Moor.

Another job 'jobbed' by volunteers!
