A Productive Day

Tuesday, June 23rd 2015

It was a busy day at Foxglove.  Our volunteers turned up in good numbers and the weather was kind, enabling us to get lots done. This week we have two work experience students TJ and Alicia with us who have been out and about learning about what happens at Foxglove.  Today they have been working with the volunteers.  Matt, TJ and Vince installed two new log benches in the woodland.

Meanwhile, some of the volunteers fixed the fence along the reed bed, while others completed the painting of the field centre’s garden fence and cut back overhanging branches from the paths and net rides.  Alicia and some of the other volunteers became skilled at bracken bashing which is a necessary task as it can become very invasive if left unchecked.

The rockery in the back garden was given a total makeover today and now looks very smart indeed!  We hope our bees will like all the new flowers we have planted in it.

We achieved a lot today- many thanks to everyone who gave their time to help out.
