On a lovely warm Saturday morning, starting at 10.00 o'clock, about 60 adults and children raked, wheelbarrowed and heaped the hay into big piles. We were sustained by delicious refreshments, supplied by Blanche, Jackie, Diane, Lorna and Alison and were finished by early afternoon.
The youngsters deserve a special mention, as most of them were under 12 years old. They all worked willingly and with enthusiasm (with a little bit of mischief making at the end!!). We left with the piles of hay intact and the field looking strangly like a medieval landscape.
We are now ready to plant our next lot of 830 trees and shrubs on November 18th. Let's hope the weather will be kind again.
