A very windy day for the volunteer task, but it didn't put our volunteers off! They got stuck in to removing a fence, clearing bramble and then after lunch, finishing the willow coppicing task started last time.
"Now where did that fence go? I'm sure it's around here somewhere..."
"Rock, paper, scissors... it's your turn to make the tea!"
And the winner of the world's first bramble bashing competition is.......
Thanks to all our volunteers for their hard work. The next task is on the 6th March - Scrub Management.
