We are having to juggle the site priorities and work around things a bit so a few changes to the list of activities below.
In August we only got one pond cleared of the two we were trying to get done and so the bigger one is postponed until October in the hope that it will have dried out a little to make it easier to clear, and that we might have more volunteers.
Sunday 27th September we’ll be on the Funnel from 10:30 (above the main Pond at south of the site – see the map) – Following the new fence being put up around the Pond we have a lot of brash and hay plus some logs to clear within and outside the fence. If anyone has a wood burning stove there should also be some firewood but may need a saw.
