Woodland Work Finally Completed

Tuesday, April 2nd 2019

Path edging has been the order of the day and Team Tuesday have done a brilliant job pegging out the timber along the sides of the woodland trail.


It hasn't been the easiest task due to the uneven ground and the large amount of roots so a bit of handy spade work has been required in places.

Bob worked so fast that at times he was a mere blur!

The same can be said for Brian! 

It has been a good use of the timbers remaining from the recent thinning of the plantation.

Work has continued on the bridge to the lake hide, our apologies for any inconvenience whilst this is taking place. Hopefully it will be completed soon.

Spigot mere is also nearing completion, more on this later in the week. Our sincere thanks to all of the volunteers for their efforts today and to the 1st Richmond Scouts and students from the Dales School who have visited over the last couple of days too. Finally, Tony has found a renewed interest in Health and Safety!
