work party reminder 27/11/2016

What: We have not yet decided exactly what we will do, and it depends to some extent on the state of the ground. If there has been sufficient rain we might plant some whips that the Woodland Trust donated. Otherwise we will do more coppicing in the north-west zone and use the timber for path edging near the north-eastern corner or for dead hedging.

How: Relevant training will be given where necessary.
