The weather was bright yet cool. So it was a busy Sunday working around Stocker’s and there were many visitors enjoying the ambience. The work party split into two groups. One group focussed on hedge layering along the canal side with Dawn, Julia and Phil leading this group and teaching some new members the intricacies of hedge layering. The other group worked on the causeway between Bury and Stocker’s Lakes removing saplings by the water’s edge along the reed bed. The removed saplings had their lateral branches taken off so that they could be used at a later date as stakes on the reserve. Apologies to the hedge layering group who worked through tea break due to a mis-communication by myself.  Rest assured, I have punished myself for such an oversight and I can only tentatively ask for forgiveness.

Many thanks to: Dawn Goodair, Julia Davies, Phil Davies, Eileen Petch, Nilesh Dodhia, Peter Ewer, Steve Cohen, Nigel Daley, Sarah Marriott, Tony and Sheila Lea.
