A Mixed Day

Thursday, November 26th 2015

That’s not a reference to the weather today which was about a good a day as you could wish for in autumn, blue skies and sunshine.


The first task for our Thursday volunteers was to do some tool maintenance, our bowsaws and loppers get quite a lot of use, you could almost say they get quite a hammering! and have especially so in the last few weeks, so we sorted through them, separating those in good working order from the ones requiring either a bit of TLC or new parts. After that we headed down past the lake hide to an area of brash collated from the streamside clearance we had completed a few weeks ago and had a bonfire. 

Thanks to some hard and efficient work today we completed several tasks, thank you one and all.
