Snakemoor Work Party

October 014

A sunny morning was the ideal time for the work party at Snakemoor on Saturday 27th October. 12 volunteers turned up and worked hard at a variety of maintenance jobs in addition to planting 3 Elm trees, 12 Box, 6 foxgloves, some Ivy and Periwinkle.

Keith Milmer of Haddenham.net came along to ensure we are well represented on this Haddenham Web site.

We had in addition four special guests. Ann Paxton and grandson Harry. John Angood and Ron Wynands. Ann is the widow of the sadly missed Brian Paxton, a volunteer to Snakemoor for a good many years. Ron and John were colleagues with Brian and me at the Princes Risborough Laboratory.

Our guests came to see the planting of the Elms provided by Ann in memory of Brian. These Elms are hopefully resistant to the Dutch elm disease and are part of the Great British Elm Experiment run by the Conservation Foundation. Visit the Foundation's website here. Soon, by clicking on the elm logo on that site, you will find the new trees on the special map. Another Elm planted at Snakemoor two years ago is already on the map.
