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!
