Volunteers Needed Urgently by Besselsleigh Wood Group on 16th and 30th January 2016

 

A Happy New Year to everyone!

 

You may recall that I mentioned that there would be two more Maintenance Saturdays in January,  16th and 30th.

The 16th isn’t far off so this is a reminder that your help would be much appreciated.   We will meet at 10.00 am at the Besselsleigh gate into the woods.

The ground is very soggy so we may need to restrict ourselves to activities where we won’t, to quote Richard, ‘get bogged down’.

 

The following are some of the things which need doing:

·         Staking leaning trees in the last new planting area. Large stakes and ties to be bought (This is urgent). 

·         Pruning the eastern edge Hedgerow and clearing the rest of the fencing away. 

·         Having a general clear up of tree shelters (ideal if we can get large numbers of helpers).

·         Removing tree shelters if capacity allows. 

·         Restoring hazel coppice.

 

All you need to bring is your wellie boots, suitable gloves and your own coffee.  (..and a pair of secateurs can often come in handy too)

 

It would be great to see you there.  Those who came last time will tell you that many hands did indeed make light work – and it was fun too!

Please could you let me know if you hope to come as it is helpful to have an idea of numbers in order to plan the best use of labour.

 

Thanks in advance.   Hope to see you there
Jane

 

PS. I’ll bring the biscuits!
