"Home from the Hill'
Cheerful Char

Snakemoor, Haddenham's own little Nature Reserve, is a delightful area in which to walk and find space for quiet contemplation. But like any natural space, mother nature can quickly take over — exuberant plant growth invading the footpaths and strangling the less prolific species.

So, in order to keep the footpaths clear and help maintain the biological diversity of the area, groups of public-spirited volunteers turn up on a regular basis to carry out the necessary work.

Under the direction of Robyn Thorogood, 18 persons of various ages turned up to do their bit on Saturday 21st September — five of these joining the work group for the first time.

The major job was that of clearing the ditch; others included the clearing of debris from fallen trees that had been cut and moved earlier in the week; also, providing some 'TLC' to the willow path, clearing around recently planted trees and planting seven new primrose plants and other small trees.

Refreshments and cakes, as ever, were provided with a cheerful smile by Chris Thorogood

A few of the volunteer workers are pictured — far be it from your editor to suggest that they capture a glimpse of the age range of the team!

Our thanks to all the willing helpers.
