On the 10th of May Ben and our wonderful volunteers ventured over to Pilgrims Meadow to install a bench and clear some encroaching scrub by the pond. The bench was funded by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Trust as part of a project to provide more rest stops along the Blackwater Valley Path. A total of six benches have been installed. The other benches can be found in Hawley Meadows, Swan Lake and Hollybush Hill. The meadow is one of our smaller sites so it was great to see the meadow orchids flowering in the height of Spring. Thanks to our volunteers visitors can now rest and enjoy the view.
