Thank you to everyone who turned out last Saturday to help start our new project area.
It’s an exciting time when a new project begins but first the site had to be cleared. This included pulling up ivy roots that had spread (felt like miles of it) well into the ground and raking leaves and we filled a few wheel barrow loads.
The fencing was also started after marking out the area and making sure we were happy with the layout so good progress was made.
The weather was kind, when the sun shone is was lovely and warm.
Don’t forget its work party day tomorrow Saturday 6th October commencing at 10.00 am. Looking at the weather forecast it looks as though it will be wet so please ensure you come along in appropriate clothing to keep you warm and dry.
We have a few jobs lined up for us so we should be kept busy.
Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported us yesterday and a huge thank you to the Co-Op for hosting us. We raised over £350 towards completing our Bird Hide on a very cold and dreary day. We still need further funds and hope to have another fundraising event in the sunshine! In the meantime we have cards for sale at £1 each, email us if interested on firstname.lastname@example.org.
