Snakemoor Work Party 03

On Saturday 14th October another hardworking group of volunteers gave their time and dedication to an Autumn tidy-up at Snakemoor. Volunteer manager, Robyn Thorogood, offers this update.

We were pleased to welcome Linda Fisher for her first time. Tom Bucknell kindly loaned his truck making it easier to get tools to the site and help with clearing up.

Michael Whitney with his tractor and trailer was a great help also. Mike Kershaw continued with hedge laying after our morning session was over.

Chris Thorogood provided the refreshments as usual.

Other helpers were: Gerry and Sue Michell, Brian Bowman, Ros Haworth, Jim Robinson and Robyn.

Work Carried Out:
Hedge laying, clearing bramble and nettles, and planting orange hawkweed on the west side of the entrance path. Also clearing fallen branches and some pruning of the orchard, and clearing elder and nettles from the pond bank. As well as weaving walls in the willow tunnel and cutting out overhanging branches from the large willow tree, and clearing fallen branches into heaps.
