Greenwood Workers

Friday, January 18th 2013

Chris one of the Foxglove Bodgers is leading a group of volunteers on a greenwood working course. This group of volunteers began their project by harvesting willow from the coppice site. First they were kitted out with work gloves and tools.

Getting Ready

The tall straight stems of the willow will lend themselves nicely to the construction of a new fence panel.

Harvesting the willow

Working hard in the sub zero temperatures is a good way to keep warm! Thanks to everyone involved and watch this space to see how the natural materials are put to good use.

Working hard to keep warm

The snow has stayed all day but no more has fallen yet. The access road is becoming icy so please take extra care if you plan to visit the reserve during the weekend. You can park on the parade square and walk in but please don't park on the big letter H (Helipad)!
