Volunteer Manager of the Snakemoor Nature Reserve, Robyn Thorogood, reports:

We had 16 willing volunteers to assist in maintaining Snakemoor on Saturday morning, 2nd March and as a result we were able to complete a lot of important jobs:

  • The Willow tunnel improved by threading and tying new growth.
  • Waste from the hedge laying cleared.
  • Snowdrops thinned and moved to bank behind pond Willow
    (some were also taken for establishing on Green Lane).
  • Branches in ditch removed.
  • Some dead wood piles cleared.
  • Fallen tree on pond bank and others cut up and removed.
  • Two log seats cut from lying tree trunk and installed at ditch waterfall.
  • Unwanted tree whips removed (these will be used elsewhere).
  • Small Box cuttings planted.

Sincere thanks to the two Michaels (Philip & Whitney) for bringing a chain saw and a tractor with trailer.

The workers were: Andy Hardy, Gerry and Sue Mitchell, Mick Whitney, Roberta Watte, John & Karen Pawsey, Andrew & Mary Hearsey, Jim Joiner, Michael Phillips, Peter Quilleash, Ros Hawarth, Wendy Brazier, Chris & Robyn.

Thanks also to Chris Thorogood for the refreshments.
