More Help From Heroes

Thursday, October 24th 2019

Another team of enthusiastic volunteers from Help for Heroes helped out on the reserve today. As this was a regular 'worky' day there were over eighteen volunteers working at Foxglove all together.

Weighing out bird seed, painting marker posts for net rides, raking and removing hay and cutting and burning Gorse were the jobs on today's list!

In some places on the moor the Gorse has almost taken over after a good growing year! This task will be ongoing during the winter months but the group made a good 'dent' in one of the worst areas.

It was a little chilly up on the moor but keeping active, having a small bonfire and sporting splendid bobble hats kept everyone warm!

Our thanks to the team who have yet again made a positive contribution to the habitats at Foxglove.

The Bluebell bank is looking very smart after it's 'haircut' thanks to lots of hard work strimming and raking. There is no need for any volunteers to go to the gym this week!
