Volunteer Work Day

Saturday, February 19th 2011

Sixteen people turned up in the snow for our second work day of this year.  Although the snow was falling early this morning everyone had a smile on their faces and worked really hard on the willow coppice area.

Here below are a selection of images from the day.  Eleanor is one of our youngest volunteers and spent the whole time smiling and working hard.

John, below, started in the thickest part of the coppice and could hardly move at first!

Lesley and her husband Steve chopped and sawed their way through many of the thinner stems.

Thank you to everyone who turned out in the snow, your hard work is greatly appreciated.  We hope to see you all next month.
