A small but dedicated team of volunteers joined Robyn Thorogood on Saturday morning, 11th March, to carry out some Springtime maintenance work at Haddenham's local nature reserve, Snakemoor. Here is Robyn's update.
Twelve volunteers came along for the work group, and quite a few visitors were out-and-about enjoying the lovely displays of Daffodils and Snowdrops.
The work completed included some new hedging planted where needed, along the newly laid hedge. Foxgloves and snowdrops were also planted in the hedge/pathway margin. Simultaneously, unearthed rubbish was removed.
Mike Kershaw had been visiting to remove any signs of bramble growing back. Surplus hedge from the layering was removed with help of Bill Piers' trailer.
Louise's Forest School Circle was cleared and the ground laid with wood chip. Two Box plants were set nearby.
A number of Cherry seedlings were removed and Cowslips were planted in the meadow and near the ditch weir. Fallen branches were removed to wood piles.
The team of volunteers on this occasion included:
Sue & Jerry Michell, Brian Fattorini, Andrew & Mary Hearsey, Mike Kershaw, Jim Robinson, Maggie & George Spicer (George on his mobility scooter), Bill Piers, Chris Young and Chris & Robyn. Refreshments were prepared by Chris Thorogood and very much enjoyed, as usual.
