New Bluebell Glade

Great day today with five of us turning out, which is pretty good for a weekday. Well done Mick, Carrina, Reece, Marcus and myself.

We have been gifted a couple of bags of English bluebell bulbs, so Marcus, Carrina and me set to work planting them.


We will just need to keep an eye on this area in the spring to make sure the bulbs have a good chance of coming up. Exciting to think how this area might look like in a few years time.


Mick and Reece carried on ripping the scrub out. We are creating a huge glade that will be perfect for butterflies and bees in the summer.


All this scrub needs to go. We are making the path as wide as we can.


As I mentioned today, we have an exciting diary date: Wednesday 7th December the guys from Sustrans are coming down to work with us. The day will begin with a bit of a classroom session teaching us new skills and honing existing ones, then a bit of lunch and then we hit the greenway to practice the skills that we have learnt. This is invaluable because we are going to be taught by professionals – what is not to love about this. The workday will end at 2:30pm. 

Thanks to all who made it today, very pleasant company and a good job done.
