Volunteer Day – Saturday 5th September 2015

Our last volunteer session was on September 5th. Rain and dark clouds didn’t make a promising start, but we had 7 people today, including a first time volunteer! The focus today was to put in more steps for the internal path and more weeding and tidying up of the access routes inside the woodland in preparation for our Grand Public Opening on Sunday 4th October.

The photos show volunteers standing in front of our newly constructed steps.  The steps now start near the recently added gate next to the Seren Park Gardens car part and are almost at the top of the woodland, where the topography flattens out.

 

 

 

 

Also is a view of the fruit trees of the glade, a fully grown pear as well as one that has been part eaten.  It’s an amazing thought that we have now fully fruiting trees so soon after being planted and is a testament to our hard work and ongoing maintenance of this area by looking after our plants.
