For this years Christmas task all the volunteers and staff descended on the Wellington Monument in Aldershot. With the fire ablaze we set to work cutting a couple of paths and the overgrown laurel at the top of the hill which was blocking the view. The stumps were treated to reduce regrowth and keep the circular path at the summit open. Everyone did a fantastic job fuelled on by the luxury BBQ and fire-roasted spuds served up in a glamorous wheelbarrow. There is now a great view from the top of the mound, which will encourage visitors to explore. Later on a rather content and appreciative fox was sitting by the fire when I returned to turn in the embers after dark.
Thank you to everyone for all your much appreciated help in 2014, we couldn’t achieve so much without your generous support. Have a lovely Christmas, and I’ll see you on the Tues 30th December Swan Lake task or in the spangly New Year. Thank you.
Ranger Stuart & everyone at BVCP
