Before More Rain

Thursday, August 15th 2019

Everything is continuing to grow!  Volunteers spent some time on the heath removing invasive species.  These include Bramble, Willow, Gorse and Silver Birch.

There were several small Oak seedlings which were dug up and replanted.  I always stop and wonder how they came to be there, a Grey Squirrel hiding acorns for the winter and forgetting where they were, or was it a Jay, doing the same thing.

After much hard work in the sunshine, five trailer loads of brash were removed and the heath was looking so good.

Work on the back garden fence and gates also continued.

The overhanging branches in the back garden were trimmed and the pond was also given some tlc.

And finally before the rain arrives the lawns were mown.

Thank you to our volunteers for all their hard work.
