The beautiful Hollybush Hill meadow received a well earned spring makeover lately. Mark used the tractor to cut back vegetation encroaching on the Blackwater Valley Path and mow paths into the meadow. This allows for much easier access and encourages visitors to stick to the paths.
Our two trainees; George and Katie, and I installed a bench on the Blackwater Valley Path facing the river as part of the Blackwater Valley Countryside Trust project. Being an ex-landfill the site was difficult to dig in so the bench provided a rewarding rest when completed.
