Monday 23 January

Ten members turned up at the Barn on a cold but sunny morning. Two went to the drystone wall near Fred’s Seat and duly worked on the capping stones and upper part of the wall before joining up with the rest of the group after coffee.

The main party went to the Gorse Patch on Little Wood Bank where we removed the saplings remaining in the area recently trimmed of gorse. Some weeding was done around the heathers that were planted there recently but the soil was frozen so it was difficult to clear properly.

Having cleared all the saplings that needed treating we headed to the Meadow on Little Wood Bank and trimmed some of the gorse at the top of the meadow, ensuring that there was a sufficient barrier between there and the path.
