On Thursday 6th March 2008 some of us went to Aston Rowant to help celebrate Sonning Common Green Gym’s 10th birthday, lay a memorial bench and cut & burn a load of scrub on the chalk downlands. Very satisfying – especially in the food department!
We made bird boxes in the woodland, as part of BBC Breathing Spaces initiative. It was very cold and frosty, so the tea break was most welcome!
An ongoing task, a bit like the Forth Bridge! We laid an enormous pile of chippings kindly supplied by the Council. Steve’s quad bike came in very handy, but we really needed our cool-down stretches at the end!
Here are some views of completed tasks, probably one-offs, though some will be revisted, such as the pond path which will be woodchipped, and the hazel plantation, which will be weeded and eventually harvested. If there is a gap in the programme brambles always need to be cleared, and reeds pulled! Steve’s quad bike is an essential tool as it saves many trips by wheelbarrow!
