A fewer number turned out today but we got so much done. We cleared a load of brash and canopy, and made a bright and open glade. We pushed the logs way off the path, cut the stumps neatly and it looked like a really professional job.
Next workday I will bring some polythene tape to tie around the trees and branches that need to be removed and we can break into organised groups, because working in a smaller group with a clear focus on what we were aiming to achieve seemed a lot more productive.
The path between the glades can remain pretty much as they are for now, with just a gentle trim to keep them clear in the summer. There are natural kinks and twists along the path so this keeps it interesting, and also some lovely specimen trees along the way.
We have a committee meeting at Cawston Grange School on Wednesday 29th September at 7:15 pm. Feel free to come along and see what we are up to or, get involved. We are a new group who are at the bottom of a huge learning curve so any suggestions or direction is always helpful.
