Autumn leaves

Sunday, November 8th 2009

With the recent wind and rain most of the leaves have now fallen from the trees creating a beautiful carpet on the floor (this photo was taken by Elizabeth).

Autumn leaves

The last few days have been so busy that the blog has been neglected! Askham Bryan students worked hard on Friday to clear more Gorse from the moor and carried out other essential jobs such as feeding hay to the cattle.

The new Christmas cards and the Foxglove 2010 calendars are now available to buy from the Field Centre (limited stock) and bookings are being taken for the Christmas party. Please book (and pay) soon if you would like to join us. See events for details.

We will be fundraising at Catterick Market on Sunday 15th November and need some more volunteers to help promote Foxglove Covert on the gates between 8am and 4pm. Please get in touch if you could give a couple of hours of your time, it will be much appreciated! It is good fun and the market will be a special 'Christingle' one.
