Work Morning 18 September - Stream cleared - orchard doing well


Five of us had a very effective work session on Sunday morning (we were probably down on numbers because it was the Bank Holiday weekend due to the Queen's funeral)

We cleared the leaf mould out of the stream bed down through the woods, to stop it flooding. The stream bed was really dry and cracked, so any rainwater will be absorbed straight into the ground for now. There's a section that is badly overgrown, so we'll have to get some help in to deal with that.

The apple trees in the Orchard have fruited well this year, but most of them have been picked already (not that we're complaining - that's what they are there for! And since you ask, yes they are tasty...)

The next Wapley events will be as follows:

Wed 19 Oct 7.30 pm
Barn Owl talk at St Nix, Abbotswood by Ian McGuire

Wed 26 Oct 7.00 pm
Owl Prowl at Wapley by Ian McGuire

Sun 27 Nov 10.00 am
Wapley tree planting morning

More details will follow in due course.
