Area Activator Simon joined Josh, Caitlin, Theodore and Karen for a wonderful Springtime woodland maintenance session with the Friends of CREOS (Crouch End Open Space). Between us, we successfully constructed multiple dead hedge barriers along the pathways linking CREOS to Highgate (protecting new saplings and habitats from pedestrian interference), using loads of donated branches, twigs, sticks and logs from a local tree surgeon. We also laid at least a ton of wood chip along the paths, to increase overall accessibility for woodland visitors. Josh was kept busy with installing new posts for dog bins along all of the CREOS paths- a very important task!

After two hours of wonderful woodland work, we returned all of our tools to their respective homes, and we were treated to a full picnic spread, offered by the Friends of CREOS. Thank you all so much!
