Report back from Wapley work morning Sunday 18 February

 Ten of us had a very successful session on the 18th, doing a variety of cutting back:

We pruned back some hedgerow branches either side of the young fruit trees at the bottom of the Lower Meadow, to give them more room to grow.

We cut back the brambles round the bug hotels to give better access for pollinators and other creatures - it's not just insects who use bug hotels, it's small mammals and birds as well.

We also cut back vegetation behind several of the newly refurbished benches on the Common. Dodington Parish Council is planning more repair work shortly.

Many thanks to all our volunteers!
