Another good size party worked off some of the Christmas pudding and mince pies.  We continued the job of clearing the undergrowth that blocks the sun from our hedge on the canal-side.  Some of us carried on layering the hedge, whilst others picked up rubbish discarded by our lovely Great British Public.   Nigel Daley took several carloads of rubbish and cuttings to the dump and cleared up the full sacks we left on site in December In February we will all get down to hedge layering – under instruction from our experts.
