Tracks, Tubes and a New Face

Tuesday, December 5th 2017

Tuesday's Volunteer Group have continued with the removal of tree tubes during the latter part of the day but have also been working on repairs to the access drive and other tasks.

Apart from these tasks, a small group have been repairing the mesh covering one of the boardwalks to ensure that it doesn't become too slippery while another group were busy collecting willow ready for tomorrow's Willow Wreath Workshop. 

Ian Wilson also started today as Reserve Manager.  Ian joins the Foxglove Covert team having worked with the National Trust as a Ranger for the Maidenhead & Cookham Commons. Prior to his work for the National Trust he was Senior Project Officer for The Conservation Volunteers-led Solent Way Project that worked to improve rights of way across the Hampshire coast.

However, Ian is no stranger to the area as he comes from Guisborough and has leapt at the chance to return to the North.
