Conservation Work - Past
We completed the benches today and laid the woodchip along the paths and seating areas and it all looks fantastic. Volunteers also cleared back some branches that were damaged or encroaching on the paths around the site and created habitat piles from the arisings.
Our delivery of woodchip and benches came this morning, both consisting of locally sourced red cedarwood, so we cleared the last of the woodchip from the paths in preparation and started constructing the new benches.
We will be planting fruit trees and fruit bushes in the grounds of Princeville Primary School.
Please do not come today unless you are booked on the residential.
We will be continuing with the tree planting at the Skipton site we have been working on. 9.30 departure come in enough time to get boots and waterproofs.

Continuing with work to renew the BEES Urban Nature Reserve, as part of our Postcode Local Trust grant; today we replaced the old steps that lead down to the site. We planted some trees, holly and guelder rose, to form a shrub layer to provide added cover and food for birds. We also did some clearing of vegetation in the woodland area and on the meadow on the railway cutting.
We are tree planting again with Ian from YORGreen. Site still to be confirmed but please note early departure time of 9.30. Please arrive before this leaving enough time to get boots and waterproofs.
