Volunteer Manager of the Snakemoor Nature Reserve, Robyn Thorogood, offers his latest report on maintenance work carried out on Saturday 26th May 2018.
An impressive amount of work was achieved by no less than 17 willing and enthusiastic volunteers on Saturday.
The willow tunnel is now well roofed; the substantial trees that had fallen were cut and piled to make a good insect home and food for birds; one of the trees deemed unsafe in a recent village survey was lopped to make it safe; the oak and elm that recently died ere dug out and removed ready for replacement trees; and various other tidying jobs were completed.
My sincere thanks to all the volunteers, namely:
Linda Fisher, Mike Kershaw, Jim Joiner, Wendy Brazier, Andrew and Mary Hearsey, Ros Haworth, Brian Fattorini, Peter Quilleash, Rob McLoughlin, Andy Hardy, Jim Robinson, Chris (refreshments) and Robyn Thorogood.
Adam Parsons and Mick Phillips, who were welcomed to their first work group.
And Michael Whitney who kindly delivered and returned to remove scaffold trestles and boards.
Thank you to all.
