We appear to have a few
pretty little snowdrops
dotted around the slopes.
In Ghost Woods
the fabulous Silver Birches
look rather splendid
against the blue sky.
The trees are full
of chirping birds.
Here’s a short video clip.

A very big
to everyone who came along to our
The morning began
with blue and yellow plastic bags
filled with bulbs
dotted about the place…
Then the volunteers set about digging holes
and planting crocuses, snowdrops and daffodils.
Volunteers worked hard with the planting
before having a well-earned
tea break (with biscuits!)
Local Counsellors Tim Young & Dave Harris
came fully prepared with strimmers and spades.
Bulbs and wild flowers were planted
around trees and along the edge of the slopes.
It was lovely to see local families
getting involved, helping out.
What did we plant?
300 Wildflower plugs
This Planting Day has been a huge success
due to the hard work of a small but dedicated
team of volunteers.
We could not have done this without you!
