Fun in the Sun

Thursday, February 18th 2016

What a great day it’s been to be out and about at Foxglove, cold but with some glorious sunshine. There has been a variety of tasks and things happening on the Reserve today. In the morning, the volunteers split into two groups, with the ‘Girls’ going round and filling all the bird feeders, whilst the ‘Boys’, gave the workshop a jolly good tidy up and sweep out.

After lunch everyone went down to Risedale Beck to help re-build the dams that feed the two small ponds. All the heavy rain of late had washed the stones etc further downstream and the pipes were left high and dry. Although it was cold, we all had fun splashing around in the beck and there were several incidences of wet feet and more!


The main drive has been getting some much needed attention today as well, with Landmarc diggers and rollers repairing the potholes. This work will continue tomorrow also. This does mean that the drive is not in use during this time, and visitors will need to park in the Parade Ground and walk down. We apologise for the inconvenience, but it does mean that the next time you visit you will have a smoother drive.


Thank you to everyone who came and helped today, we couldn’t do it without you.

On a sadder note, today is Matt’s last day at Foxglove, we thank him for all he’s done and achieved for the reserve and wish him every success for the future.
