Ingredients for a Novice Hedge Laying Day

A bright, sunny day in February, with rooks flying overhead and ladybirds creeping about, enjoying the weather

A challenging length of hedgerow.

Expert help and advice from hedge layer Adrian Walters, who trained at Otley College and now manages the Sudbury Common Lands Trust and is a wildlife advisor to Suffolk Wildlife Trust and the Green Light Trust.

Grenville Clarke, from The Green Light Trust, who supplied tools, knowledge and encouragement.

Add a break for a generous helping of home made soup.

Mix it all together with an enthusiastic, hardworking group of green volunteers.
