Thanks for your help!

The wildflowers along the edge of the rides were cut last week ready for the working party to rake up and put into heaps among the trees.
A small group of 7 retired, over seventies (except one ), managed to rake up most of the debris and heap it  into piles along the rides.

But the dark clouds were looming  ---  time was running out and energy was  ebbing away!

So the  piles still need to  be moved off the rides and heaped between the trees.This will  encourage more wildflowers to grow next year

This morning, Malcolm spent a couple of hours in the wood and  managed to  move most of the heaps of hay off the rides. He was joined by Alan Smythe on his ride-on mower, to do  his final cut for the year. Excellent!
