Winter Worky Day

Saturday, November 3rd 2018

Today was our first Winter Worky day of the season, thank you very much to all the volunteers who came to help. 

We started work on another section of the coppice, just to the right of the Field Centre, firstly removing all the Birch trees, followed by pollarding large Willow Trees. Small oak saplings, as well as a Rowan, a Field Maple, Alder Buckthorn and some impressive ferns were found in the area. 

Before: the area was dense with small self-seeded Birch trees which were swamping some lovely trees in the centre, and even growing into a dried up pond on the corner. 

After: we managed to clear a significant area which suddenly looked a lot more open this afternoon. A large bonfire was had, even if slightly early for Bonfire Night. 

Now all we needed was a Guy and a few fireworks… 

We have our next Winter Worky Day on Saturday the 1st of December from 10:00 to approximately 15:00, with a cooked lunch provided. Feel free to get in touch with us if you were like to volunteer, we wouldn't be able to do all the work we do without the help of volunteers.
