Defence Estates volunteers

Thursday, October 22nd 2009

Today we have had volunteers from the Geo-spatial team at Defence Estates. They came for a team building work day and have done themselves proud with the amount of work they undertook.

Geo-spatial team at Defence Estates

Along with Andrew, Raymond, Sophie and myself they have cleared gorse, birch and brambles from a small meadow along the discovery trail. This meadow now looks three times the size!

Although the weather forecast was very poor, the rain held off for most of the day, and without a breath of wind to disturb the air everyone was soon taking their coats off as they were getting rather warm! After a lunch of chicken curry and some home-baked rock buns from Sophie they were back out for the rest of the afternoon.

The end of the day was enlivened by finding sheep in the wet meadows again and 5 'volunteers' went to round them up. Thanks a lot to everyone who came today. We hope to see you back again, whether working or not!!
