What a gorgeous Monday morning for getting out on the hillside and working with the conservation volunteers. Matt from BCN Wildlife Trust brought cake and thanked the crew for their ongoing efforts and contribution to the Wilder Futures project. Today we had the additional excitement of a two person contractor team with their chipper machine, and they worked steadily at sawing wood and scrub and feeding the machine with the cuttings. So next time at this site you will see a liberal application of woodchip along the pathways. Sam from Luton Borough Council Parks and myself were detailed to tidy up the stumps that were too chunky for the chipper as well as clearing a large quantity of bramble from clearing work at the corner of Fairford Avenue and Bushmead Road. A very satisfying task and a great start to a Goodgym week.
