A Busy Week

Thursday, January 16th 2020

A lot has been happening at Foxglove lately! Volunteers have been as busy as ever working on all kinds of jobs. Roof repairs to one of the stores was a real priority. 

A second delivery of trees was collected from Thorpe Trees, courtesy of Bettys Tearooms. This time there were some large apple trees which will fill in the gaps in our two orchards. These require much bigger holes than the other species!

They included Lord Derby, Laxton Superb and Blenheim Orange. Hopefully they will provide important food for wildlife such as thrushes in the future!


Staff and young people from Northdale assisted with the planting after having filled some of the bird feeders and feeding the ducks.

Up on the moor staff from Sam Watson Fencing replaced old broken post and wire fences along the ancient hedgelines.

Although it has been a busy week there was still time for celebrations as it was both Elizabeth and Ian's birthdays.

This was unfortunate for the Reserve Managers as there is a new rule in place!
