Light At The End Of The Tunnel!

Monday, March 29th 2021

Most of the Ash trees that are close to the path edges are now safe. Some that have had the dead wood removed somehow still look majestic! Where possible, habitat piles have been left such as the log pile seen here which will be ideal for invertebrates, amphibians and small mammals to live in.

Brash has been burned or made into woodchips to use on paths close by.

Once again, extra help was gratefully received from the Personnel Recovery Centre (PRC) at Catterick Garrison; a small team assisted with moving some of the heavier timber. Not only did this make a huge difference to us, it also provided a great opportunity for a 'green gym' workout!

As well as the 'big Ash tidy up' other maintenance jobs have been carried out such as painting of signs and repairing some of the large bird feeders after a wet and wild winter!

So far, thanks to the dedicated team of volunteers, we are still on track to re-open to visitors on April 12th.
