Well what a day! Five of us in the end and we really managed to have a good old tidy up and burn off the piles of brash. The day started foggy and damp, and I really thought that I was going to be on my own. I did not really relish the idea of trying to start a bonfire with damp timber.
Luckily the Bear Grylls in me kicked in and I soon had a roaring fire on the go!
Great to get all the brash cleared though, and bonfires under the cover of the fog meant nobody called the fire brigade, which was a bonus.
The bench is fixed, but needs to be attached to the side of the bridge to stop it moving.
Lastly, signs of life – wild flowers are already taking hold in the areas that we have cleared.
Next workday is Monday 13th April starting at 9am. We just need to snip back any scrub that is making a break for it over the path. If we start at the entrance and work down the path, we should get to the end.
Thanks to all who made it today.
