Three weeks of work in and around the pond. To include clearing scrub from the island and enhancing the margin with fagots. Bring wellies and stout rubber gloves if you have them. Details to be explained on the day under Rod’s guidance.
Week 1: scrub clearing and a little felling around the pond and island. Ben involved in ground works with his digger.
Week 2: driving stakes and binding 200 faggots (no chips, no peas) around pond margin. (But good cakes from Mrs Mike and Mrs Barry. Thank you.)
Week 3: more of the same and a BBQ lunch with Adey at the grill.
The farm is closed to the public under a reduced winter-time regime.
