This week saw a special event after the mornings work, an assessment of last weekends strong winds and some more beautiful flowers emerging. The wind had blown down some large trees around the village but our wood managed to escape any serious damage. A large oak branch fell on the east path going towards the quarry and a couple of smaller branches straddled paths. They were all cleared away with hand saws and elbow grease. Marsh marigolds have made an appearance whilst the bluebells are slowly laying down their carpet. Bill had a birthday which the group celebrated in traditional style by finishing slightly early and sitting around by the large oak called Trafalgar. The sun shined all morning and the rain drops fell at 12.00 noon – we all left very happy!
