What a stunning day in the meadow ,in the morning the members completed the tree survey our first , we now know how many trees we have ,what kind ,size, health and the amount of useful wood . The afternoon was spent clearing the Lop & Top and making habitats. I must not forget the kids making thumb sticks for passers through these will be on sale for £2 So a very successful day
thank you all for all your hard work
