Volunteer Christmas Lunch

Tuesday, December 17th 2013

Volunteers worked up an appetite this morning re-surfacing and building woodchip paths at various locations across the reserve.  Everyone worked fantastically hard moving almost 6 tonnes of woodchip!  Thank you all for your efforts this morning, the pathways are looking brilliant.

Our Christmas trail was also put up around the Red Route this morning; make sure to visit the Field Centre to collect the sheet and complete the trail to find the hidden message.  Our other school holiday activities are now available in the classroom.

Once the work had been completed everybody headed back to the Field Centre for our annual volunteers Christmas Lunch.

As usual at these events everyone brought along a little something to share and there was a delicious variety of dishes.  Soon everyone was tucking in and enjoying themselves.

Thank you to all of the Foxglove volunteers for your support throughout 2013.  We will be having a volunteer morning next Tuesday (Christmas Eve), after this there will be no further volunteer days until the New Year.  Our next winter worky day is on Saturday 4th January; why not help out your local nature reserve as well as burning off some of the Christmas excess!  Details and booking forms can be found on the events page.
