Happy New Year. The company of volunteers are working hard to coppice the hazel trees and are also producing Flower Stakes, Bean Rods and Pea Sticks as a by product, to be sold, possibly at the annual village fayre. We all worked hard cutting and protecting the newly coppiced trees with wigwam frames. Whilst the main group coppiced, Steven and Neil barrowed wood chippings to cover bald patches on the pathways. They also noted places that need urgent attention next week. We did break off slightly early to celebrate Steven’s birthday.
