Yesterday Moor Green Lakes was invaded by classes 3 & 4 from Finchampstead CE Primary School to enjoy the sunshine. Aided by some BVC volunteers the young people set to work trimming the laid hedge near the bird-feeder paddock. During the first couple of years after laying, this helps to encourage the hedge to become more bushy. They did a grand job armed with loppers & secateurs, trimming an incredible 170m.
Without a doubt the highlight for the students was using wheelbarrows and a trolley to transport the brash. The trolley was on its way back to the supermarket, having been retrieved on our litter pick of the south Blackwater Valley Path the day before, where we cleared 71 sacks of rubbish. A big thank you to all the young people, teachers and volunteers for their fantastic effort helping the reserve.
