Monday 30 October

Seven members of the group met on an inclement morning. Two completed earlier work on the stone wall in Gulley’s Meadow, in spite of running out of cope stones. They improvised by double-coping in the middle.

Two others cleared the conduits from the middle pond to the lower pond whilst the remaining three began work on replacing two rotten steps on the path up to the Deer Park before being joined by the pond clearers. The Holly Path was also cleared of overhanging branches. After coffee, the group cut back brambles and grass and removed collars and stakes from more established saplings in the area above the allotments.
