Net ride 38 completed

Tuesday, March 27th 2018

Today's volunteer task started where I got to late yesterday evening with tidying up the split willow leaning over the path behind the Field Centre.

All in all it's taken around 10 trailer loads to remove brash from the area, with the last 4 being considerably easier thanks to our volunteer task force.

After raking up after ourselves it was time for a quick beverage before getting back to net ride 38.

What we originally thought to be one of the easier net rides to cut has turned out to be one of, if not the hardest to deal with. Every time we've gotten back to tidying I've been amazed at the sheer volume of stuff that we were able to cut down in one day!

After finally getting net ride 38 out of the way there was enough time for a spot of gardening, where we set to planting a whole bag load of Snowdrops Big John brought over from his allotment.  

I must now take the time to apologise to Eddie for the above picture which shows him gardening despite him telling his wife that it's been far too wet for such activities of late.
