A Visit From BFBS
Wednesday, January 16th 2019
Welcome to our new and improved website. This was a Management Group initiative which they see as the reserve’s shop window reflecting the enormous array of activities and quality community work that takes place consistently within the reserve. This is thanks to months of hard work behind the scenes by Jez from MakeHay Ethical E-Media Ltd to whom we are extremely grateful.
Yesterday work continued in the coppice block with the pollarding of several large Willow trees. This ongoing project will prolong the life of these mature specimens and allow more light to reach the ground.
The brash needed to be dragged quite a distance and Eddy felt a bit like a cart horse (in his own words)!
Later in the morning, Chris Kaye presenter of the Breakfast show at BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Service) came to do a feature on the reserve and began by interviewing the Reserve Managers.
The volunteers were interviewed next, with Naomi first in line on her first day volunteering at Foxglove, talk about being chucked in at the deep end!
It was time for a cake and tea delivery in the woodland, armed with two hard hats and two high vis jackets for extra safety, Imogen headed up to the conifer plantation.
Next to be interviewed was Sean from Yorkshire Tree Specialist who can be seen here orchestrating the Green Works in the conifer block. He takes all this in his stride having been on TV several times in the past!
Meanwhile Brian cooked up a feast of baked potatoes on the fire!
And finally, some proof that our Exmoor ponies like the taste of fluffy Gorse!
