The plan was to clear nettles from around the young trees we had planted in 2011 and cut vegetation back from the woodchip path but thanks to the gale force winds of the previous couple of days we found ourselves with the additional task of lopping and sawing a couple of large willow trees that had been blown down and were blocking the main path.
There were also a lot of fallen twigs and small
branches to be cleared from the path as well. Fortunately there was a good
attendance, twelve in all. The wind had died down and the weather was dry. After
the break, we had time to put fresh woodchip down on the western end of the path
where it had worn away.
