Work and Play

Tuesday, November 12th 2013

It was a busy day with almost 30 volunteers turning out to help in the glorious weather.  Work continued on from the Worky Day last weekend clearing old growth willow around the new orchard area.

Some work is still to do to finish off, but with the majority of it now done the area has been completely transformed.  The volunteers enjoyed a well deserved mid-morning break in sun admiring their hard work.

As you may have heard Sophie will be leaving the reserve at the end of the month to take up a post as a Teaching Assistant at Wavell School.  Sophie has given a lot to the reserve over her five years here and will be missed by staff, volunteers and visitors alike.  As a send off volunteers planned a lunch for her today to thank her for her hard work here and wish her luck for the future.  We are sure that she will stay involved with the reserve helping on Worky Days and with the ringing team.

Thank you to the volunteers for your hard work today, both outside and inside the Field Centre.  We also want to thank everyone who helped with the lunch, cooking the amazing variety of dishes, setting up the classroom, and washing up!

Thank you everybody for such a special lunch. It was a lovely surprise and I am touched that so many of you came along. I have enjoyed working with you all and will miss volunteer days the most. Thank you too for all of the kind cards, gifts and wishes, I am extremely grateful (Sophie).
