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.
