The other big job that was taken on this weekend was tree rescuing. In February, we planted a whole load of trees for the Jubilee. Since then, the nettles and vegetation have grown and taken over the young trees’ space. The volunteers dug and tugged and managed to clear the space, giving the trees a chance to get the nutrients from the ground and allowed the light to reach them.
Alongside these jobs, we repaired a water butt, built stepping stones, painted non-slip paint on bridges, prepared planters, fixed picnic benches, mowed the grass and created a musical washing line!

Why not come and see all the progress that has been made at our Summer Fair on June 24th. The event runs from 10am-4pm (entry £3). There will be tractor rides, donkeys, a maypole, face painting, pond dipping and more.
Our 'pignic' area is also open, with our farm trails, shop and tearoom Tues - Sun.
