A sunny and frosty morning saw an excellent turnout of 16 members (including two new ones).
Traditionally this first session of the new year has been used for a major litter pick when we delve in to all the minor paths and check out areas where larger items have been dumped in the past. This year the amount collected was the smallest yet comprising only 3 full bags of general rubbish, 2 sections of concrete posts, a manhole cover, a scooter, and 3 pieces of wire trellis.
This allowed most of the group to concentrate on clearing the paths of several trees on both reserves that had collapsed under the weight of the snow which fell on Boxing Day evening.
Two of the group finished clearing a section of the bridle path which had not been completed last month.
The Friends are always looking for extra pairs of hands to help out or to simply support their work, so...
