Many hands make light work!

Tuesday, February 11th 2014

Despite the wintery weather we've had our usual team of Tuesday volunteers out to help us on the reserve today. This morning we cleared and burnt the area of birch which was felled yesterday afternoon.

This afternoon we worked on some pollards in the parking areas near the centre. This is one of them before Adam got to work on it…

And this is how it looked as work continued, with Adam's arms feeling much heavier by the end of the day!

We have been joined today by our regular helpers from The Dales School and also by a small group from Bedale High School.

Not forgetting of course a very friendly Robin!

Thank you everyone for your help today.
