Happy 2024!

Sunday, January 7th 2024

This Thursday we were back with our first practical volunteering session of 2024 with a continuation of the willow coppicing started in 2023. 

While some members of the team were cutitng down willow, others worked on building a fire to start burning some of the excess material taken down in the previous coppicing sessions. With some dry weather, little wind and a lot of patience a successful fire was started, despite the damp wood we were working with!

All in all it was a successful start to 2024 and some good progress was made in coppicing this section of the carr. We here at Foxlgove wish everyone a Happy New Year and a successful 2024!
