We had 11 volunteers this morning and fortunately the weather was ideal for working.

The Council had given us a selection of silver birch and elder and someone from Canopy 2050 had supplied a lot of hawthorn and a few yew all of which looked really strong and healthy.

  • The area alongside the hedge on the main path as you approach the Devils Steps was cleared on both sides and the hawthorns were planted here to restore the sections where gaps had appeared. 202402b
  • The rest of the trees were planted in various places all on the Markham Road reserve.
  • This took the whole morning to complete so the other jobs listed for this session will be tackled next month. 2024-02a
  • The usual litter collection was completed on both reserves.

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