Once again we had fine weather, and most of us managed to stay sheltered from the cold wind. We were delighted to welcome the 4th West Bridgford scouts, who helped us to plant whips donated by the Woodland Trust. We planted mainly blackthorn in gaps along the eastern boundary, dog rose and elder along the sides of the main and western paths near the north end, and hazel in the north-west zone. Some of the scouts helped barrow wood chip from the pile at the southern end to where it was needed as mulch around the whips. We succeeded in planting all the whips apart from the crab apple. Also Chrissie planted an oak tree grown in her garden from an acorn, and Phil and Ben cleared fallen ash branches from some of the paths, the result of recent gales. As usual there was litter to bring down.
