Carillion Enterprises volunteers

Saturday, October 24th 2009

Today we have had a volunteer workday with staff from Carillion Enterprises. Kevin brought 11 people over to Foxglove who wanted to give their time helping with our work. After a guided walk around the reserve and a damp start this morning, they soon were taking off their coats as the bonfire grew higher and higher !

Staff from Carillion Enterprises

They cleared an area of plantation which had been a mess since last winter when 4 very large trees had blown down. Numerous log piles later and with a lot of hard work the area has been cleared ready for the new growth next spring.

As you can see by this photo the bonfire was sending flames skywards very quickly !

Thank you to Kevin for organising this visit. We look forward to your next one.
