We had our first working party this year, to cut back the hedge that runs alongside the public footpath in the wood. We removed a lot of the brambles that were rampaging in the undergtowth and generally trimmed back branches.
All the hedges surounding  the wood are old and have  mature and coppiced trees dotted along them for added interest. Sadly the hedge that we were working on today is atarted to have gaps in it where animals and people cut throught from the meadow.Ways of restoring the hedgrow was discussed as we worked and we decided to block an expanding gap at the back of the play equipment, to encourage the children to use thenearby bridge acess into the wood.
