All In a Days Work!

Saturday, August 25th 2012

At the Rural Crafts Day Beth and Wade won the raffle prize of being a Warden for the day! Their first job was to check the cattle and sheep on the moorland with Elizabeth.

Then they helped to measure some of the footpaths that need to be repaired.


A family very kindly donated some trees that they had grown from seeds and the next job was to plant some Oak trees.

Everyone helped to plant the trees. From little acorns…

All before lunch!

After lunch some of the bird feeders were filled ready for the weekend.

Thank you to everyone involved today, what a great team!
