A huge "Thank you" to the 27 volunteers who turned up in Mill Lane in Chinnor today to clear some 200m of largely derelict hedgerow ready for replanting. Larger trimmings of hawthorn and sycamore were used to create a barrier of brash between the new planting area and Mill Lane, hopefully to deter people from walking through the hedge and trampling new plants. A large amount of ivy and bramble was removed to provide a clear planting area 3-4 feet in front of the fence.
A further work party is planned for 10am-4pm on Sun 25th Nov, all welcome. Full instructions will be provided.
Particular thanks are due to Alan and Linda Brawn for their excellent organisation which ensured this first phase of the job was delivered safely without injury, and to Maureen Dyroff for keeping us all fed with tea and cake.
