Volunteer Group Diary

 

1 February 2024

We had a good day clearing masses of bramble along the old wall. Yes, we know that they will grow back but we tried to pull them up with the roots still attached.

As usual, we did the litter picking BUT we were counting the dog poo bags as we went and there were 50 of them! This is appalling! The main area we found them was out of the gate through to the forest where litter louts threw them into the ditch. That gate doesn't have a poo bin so irresponsible people just fling them down.

A New Year and we went round to collect all the fallen branches from the recent storms.

One of our regular tasks is to fill holes with the burnt cinder from the fire to prevent nasty falls for people!
