Valued Volunteers

Tuesday, June 15th 2021

After hearing the fantastic news that the Foxglove Volunteer group had been awarded with the prestigious Queen's Award for Voluntary Services it has been a busy few weeks at the reserve. A big celebration is in the pipeline and a date will be decided on once the latest government restrictions have been announced.

In the meantime, all volunteers have had some celebratory cake!

Twice! Thank you to Elizabeth for these delicious cakes.

There has been a lot of publicity too with photo shoots for newspapers and interviews for newspapers and radio

A group from the Personnel Recovery Centre came to lend a welcome hand. 

Time has been spent revisiting winter work areas. The Willow that was cut to ground level in the coppice block is already showing lots of new growth.

Summer work has been carried out including tasks such as slashing Bracken around the Outdoor Classroom,

painting the original shed…

and mowing and strimming of net rides and paths.

As always all of this help and support is extremely valued.
