Despite four of our regulars being unavailable today we still had nine volunteers on a perfect sunny October morning and still completed the scheduled jobs. These were:

  • Carrying out minor repairs to two of the steps leading from Thoresby Road.
  • Litter picking on both reserves.
  • Removing invasive bramble that had spread over the area where heathers are established.
  • Most of ther group began clearance of the lower branches from what was obviously once an avenue of trees These were probably planted many years ago, possibly as a boundary to one of the fields that were in this area.

    Although there is still work to do here, today's session has already made a huge difference and the "avenue" can now be clearly seen.

    The Friends are always looking for extra pairs of hands to help out or to simply support their work, so...
