We were honoured by a visit from the Town Mayor and Mayoress (Tony and Claire Lack) this morning to thank us for our efforts towards the Wokingham "Bloom" initiative and generally thank us for the work we have done in The Copse over the past twenty years. Long service awards were presented to Mike, Colin, Valerie, John and Pip with certificates and chocolate bars handed out to all.
First coppicing session of the season. A good turnout with some new faces and a very enjoyable morning.
Three red oak trees planted today with help from the staff of the Newbury Building Society (and their kids!)
Hedges trimmed today with help from the staff of the Wokingham branch of the Newbury Building Society. Great to have you with us!
Two hours of lovely weather, the usual festive fun & games with storm kettles, socially distanced mince pies/mulled punch, followed by a 30 minute downpour. All in all a very enjoyable morning.
A lovely morning for working in Joel Park. The bench has been re-installed and we're getting good at socially distanced tea breaks!
Before and after photos showing the result of an epic bramble clearance session completed this morning.
