End of Summer Tasks

Thursday, August 26th 2021

As autumn approaches the volunteers are busy with the last of the summer tasks.  The workshop had been cleaned, undercoated and was ready for its coat of green paint.  Many hands make light work.

Members from the PRC, Catterick Garrison attended today. They carried out a variety of tasks, including collecting the cut reeds from the reed bed which, although having been cut back recently, were still falling over the path making walking along the boardwalk and interesting experience.

Checking the stock, cleaning the hides, strimming and clearing the paths were all on the todo list.  Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped to achieve a great deal of work by the end of the day.

A reminder that the reserve will be closed briefly on the morning of Friday 27th August and will re-open at 13:30. We apologise for any inconvenience.
