Volunteer session Saturday 11th August 2018

Here is Jonathan’s message

Hello All,

There’ll be a volunteer session at Fairfield Orchard, Fauna and Flora this
Saturday morning, August 11th, starting at 10.00am and finishing at 1.00pm
or something very much like it.

On the agenda for this session – or as one of my managers at work recently
said, “This is the ask”…

*Trimming back the hedges all along the track down from Sunnyside Lane,
past the shed.

* Rolling and stacking the hay bales in position in the Gun Range.

* Cutting back the trees growing out of and alongside our Aldcliife Road

And that’s about it for this time,
Best wishes,

  1. And here’s what we did:
    The Saturday monthly session attracted 12 volunteers on a fine, sunny morning.
    • Just before the session started Fraser informed us that he was content with the present location of the hay bales so we did not move them as intended.
    • The hedge bordering the track down from Sunnyside Lane to the Orchard was trimmed back and encroaching weeds dug out.
    • Further work was done clearing around the bases of the fruit trees bordering the Pads footpath and then throughout the Orchard.
    • Trees growing alongside the Aldcliffe Road / Flora Field wall were cut back.
    • Rubbish was collected from the area and barrowed back for disposal.
    • The Orchard paths were trimmed of overhanging vegetation, including the notice board at the south end.
    • The new shrubs in the Old Damson Copse were cleared of encroaching growth.
    • The grass around the shed was mowed.
