Monday 12 June

On the hottest Monday morning so far, eleven of us met at the Barn, and split into three groups to go our separate ways: 

Four went to Stone Cross Field. The new whips were heavily covered by grass and weeds, in most cases higher than the whips themselves. We cut around, allowing them better access to sunlight and rain.  We all commented how well they were doing.

A group of four did several jobs in Parkbank Wood. On the path along the top of the wood going down towards Bocking Lane, two revetments that had largely fallen away were replaced, and a broken one was repaired. Continuing on the path to the descent alongside Cockshutt Farm, a broken step near the top of the slope was replaced.
