Last Volunteer Day 2021

Friday, December 24th 2021

Volunteers volunteered on Thursday even though the weather was dreich.  A break in the rain saw them venture out from under the dripping trees to fill the feeders and hoppers around the reserve. 

In amongst the instructions and directions the Mallards came out very well as they were fed twice!

Another Ash tree was found, a result of Storm Arwen, and Ian kindly cut it up so, as Gerry put it, 'thank you Ian for cutting them to sizes us mere mortals can carry!'  They still look pretty big to me!

Of course once the tree was sorted, there was yet more clearing up - it is never ending!  

Thank you to the volunteers who helped.  Every task ensures that the reserve will be ready for the spring growth.

Lesley (Chair of the MG) on behalf of Foxglove Covert's Management Group would like to take this opportunity to wish Sophie and Gerry, our reserve managers, part-time employees, friends, volunteers and supporters a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

They send a huge thank you to everyone for your continued support, dedication and friendship throughout 2021.
