Woodland tidy with the Risedale Rangers

Wednesday, October 3rd 2018

We've been working with children from Risedale Sports & Community College in the woodland on the other side of Risedale Beck again today. This has involved a continuation of the tidying up that we were doing last week whilst also starting work on repairing some of the boardwalks.

In order to renovate the said boardwalk it has been necessary to remove all of the tread boards so as to be able to assess the condition  of the joists underneath. This was a job the boys relished as it involved a degree of controlled destruction. 

In the afternoon Imogen and I have busied ourselves with removing detritus from the Outdoor Classroom roof. 

The job may sound a little mundane, however any jobs in which you can see what you've done as you go along is an enjoyable one!

Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
website? I’m getting tired of Wordpress because I’ve had problems with
hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a
good platform.
