The Great Hay Rake

Leave a comment


The aim is to get around 100 people on the meadow with rakes and take the hay off around 7.5 acres . The grass is cut each year to reduce the levels of nutrition in the ground ,this in turn encourages wild flowers to start to colonise the ground. come along get a seat on and bring some fly repellent and dont forget your picnic. So come along sing songs dance if you want but we have to get the hay off
