Volunteer Group Diary

 

 

1 July 2021

A larger team today and we were continuing to clear the foliage from the fenceline which had flourished at this time of year. There has been a delay with the grass cutting even though the bluebells have finished flowering. We are hoping that it will soon be done

 

Even our experienced members can have an accident but it is rare for us to need First Aid!

 

Luckily, we have some very large plasters! Quite a few of our team are now First Aid qualified.

This was an enormous Cedar tree but it had split it's trunk near to the top and was dangerously hanging so it had to be removed.

The fence can be barely seen behind all the bramble and the bramble was removed.

Tea time with the team!

 

 

 

8 April 2021

We were in a group of 6 people and managed to have a day in the Arboretum for the first time since December. There were many fallen branches to drag and burn and a general assessment of the site was achieved

The team enjoyed their day out!

 

We usually do litter picking in the Arboretum and around the car parks.

 

 

 

March 2021

The Dean Green Team could only do four days of volunteering work in the Arboretum over the last year during all the lockdowns so there is a great deal of catching up with all the fallen branches and general clear up! We will be working there in April

The Rhododenrons have come into flower!
