It might have been a damp weekend but it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of our superstar volunteers!

  • 12m of boardwalk installed
  • Oak tree cage erected
  • Large sycamores felled and large area cleared of saplings
  • Two areas of hazel coppice cut
  • 200m of fencing removed
  • 60 hazel saplings plants

Total volunteer hours of work 432 over the weekend!
