Odd Jobs

Thursday, April 17th 2014

Volunteers have had a busy day today finishing off a few little jobs around the reserve and filling the bird feeders ready for the bird ringing session tomorrow.  David and Lizzie spent time this morning in the woodland repairing the wire on some sections of boardwalk where it had rusted through and become a tripping hazard.

Mike and David also repaired several more of the non-slip strips on the boardwalk through the scrapes. As well as this the back garden was given a tidy, the grass was all cut, and the rest of the benches were brought back to the workshop where they were given a good clean and rub down before being treated with wood preserver.

Thank you to everyone who has helped with these little jobs that keep Foxglove ticking!

Team Thursday do it again, although I think you missed a tiny patch on that last bench?!
