Winter Worky Days Begin

Saturday, November 7th 2015

The day started with torrential rain and the forecast was for more of the same for the rest of the day. Our fabulous volunteers were not deterred and twenty eight came to help out on the first winter worky day of the year.

We set to work removing Silver Birch saplings from a naturally regenerated conifer block.

Despite the rain a fire was soon going, warming the workers and burning off the piles of brash.

Everyone was in high spirits and seemed certain that the clouds would blow over producing a sunny afternoon.  We stopped for the usual curry lunch and some fabulous cakes that the volunteers had prepared.

Just as the food was being served the clouds disappeared and we were treated to a clear blue sky for the afternoon's activities.

As usual everyone worked very hard today and we cleared a substantial area. Thank you to everyone who came and braved the elements to help out, as always it really is appreciated.

Don’t forget that the next Winter Worky Day is on the 5th of December, we hope to see you all there.
