Keeping Busy

Thursday, November 28th 2019

Volunteers were too busy working today to notice the cool temperatures. It was a day to catch up on smaller tasks that have been on the list for a while. Staff and young people from Northdale Horticulture in Northallerton joined in too and swept the leaves from the boardwalk to the outdoor classroom.

A small Oak tree was kindly donated recently. It was planted in the newly cleared area close to the plantation. Here it will have plenty of space and sunlight and should reach a good size eventually.

Repairing bridges, making a new key press, tidying sheds and cleaning bird feeders were all jobs that got 'ticked off' the 'to do' list.

Natural materials were also gathered and prepared for the Festive Crafts Workshop in early December. Whilst out and about, the team noticed fungi almost everywhere.

At least there is one benefit from endless rainfall!

If you would like to get involved why not come along to the December Winter Worky day and have a go at some practical conservation work? Fresh air, exercise and even a hot meal as a thank you! It definitely beats Christmas shopping!
