As well as our longer projects our Volunteers also tackle many shorter, day long jobs, around our patch. This is the time of year when we are between the intense woodland work and the start of the regular path cutting projects and is a time to catch up with the smaller jobs around our sites. The following projects undertaken during April are typical of the sort of things we do. Continue reading A Roundup of Recent Workdays
It is the time of year when we tackle a range of jobs across many sites. Much of our summer work is cutting back along footpaths and catching up with maintenance jobs and the past few weeks have been typical for this time of year.
