It has been a busy few days at Foxglove preparing for various events. On Friday, Carla decorated the Christmas tree in the Field Centre to get ready for the festive season and it looks fantastic. There will be a Christmas trail for familes to enjoy over the school holidays so watch this space!

Gloves and tools were organised ahead of the Winter Worky Day.

Benches were fetched back to the Field Centre in order to dry out before being sanded down and treated with wood stain.

Some of them had to be carried a long distance however, this is never a problem as it is easy to take a rest!

Finally, some of the fruit trees were carefully pruned to prepare them for the summer months.

Later this week, Willow will be harvested for the Christmas Crafts Workshop on Saturday. There are still some places left on this event and if you would like to take part then please see the events page for details.
