October - Work Morning
work crew

9 willing volunteers turned out this morning to undertake some coppicing and further scrub clearance.

A lot of vegetation and self-seeded sycamore was removed from the bluebell bank alongside the main path, which should help to ensure a good display next Spring.

The team also tackled coppicing of some of the hazel stools along the back of Dorset way, creating a splendid new dead hedge at the same time.
Thanks to all who came along to help
