……that my drink froze in its water-bottle!!
But that did not deter Reece, Marcus, John and me.
We started a fire and boy-o-boy did it labour for the first half hour, but eventually the brash started to dry out and burn.
I am not entirely comfortable with burning off what would be fantastic habitat piles so I might have a rethink, moving forwards. At least the fire kept us warm though.
There was so much smoke that it felt like a steam train had just shunted past.
Next week we meet at either The Bear or the Community Hall at 9:30 for our classroom session with Sustrans, and then after a spot of lunch, we get out onto the greenway to practice the new skills that we have learnt, finishing at 2:30.
Well done everyone today. We have cleared the glade and have a lot of open ground that will benefit in the spring and summer when sunlight will start to make new things grow.
