Great January work morning!

It was good to see so many people at the workday on Sunday 22 January - we had 18 volunteers, so we were able to tackle a wide variety of work. We planted 20 trees in the gaps in the laid hedge at the bottom of the lower meadow, cut back overhanging trees and brambles, and did a lot of tidying-up. As a bonus, one of our groups of volunteers saw two deer at fairly close range! Here are a few photos from the day:
