Coffee and Biscuits is the Way Forward

What a difference a coffee, a biscuit, and a natter can make…

I don’t remember where the flask was foraged from, but the cups cost £4.50. In terms of value and use, I would probably say that is £4.50 very well spent!

Marcus, Tom (doing his DofE), Tom’s Dad, Mick and myself got down to the bird-feeder clearing on Saturday and litter-picked up to the underpass and back.

Loads of users of the path. Mountain bike groups, runners, walkers, dogs, children. Really good to see it getting so much use.

We still have our lovely avenue of trees, despite the recent chopping back.

Wildlife spotting…

And lastly, in our efforts to create the bench areas we have not noticed the ivy growth!!

It has gone a bit mad and needs to be cleared right back. We used to have lovely spring violets growing here, a great early source of nectar. It may be worth trying to clear a bit every time we walk past it?

Until the next one!
