Volunteer Event 11 April – Post And Rail Fencing

Colin Gray writes:

“At Chestnut Grove the rangers were asked to reopen that ditch that Adam and I sealed off.  I have explained to the rangers why we sealed it. The area however now looks a mess and the open aspect has been allowing people and dogs to access the reedbed.

Our job will be to put up post and rail fencing around that corner, tidy up the soil pile (probably just level it off a bit) and tidy the vegetation to allow the bramble to return as a natural barrier.  There should be enough timber at the workshop for a fence and we must try to make a nice neat job given the rather random selection of posts available.”

As you can see, a good job was done!
