Today Laura, the volunteers and I headed out to hay cut the wet meadow in Royal Oak Valley in Yateley. It was hot, humid work so it was great to have the help of Nick, Phil and Leigh, Rangers with Hart District Council. The gang posed with the HDC tractor, after we found a slow worm in the woodland edge.
As a welcome diversion from hay raking, the volunteers also cleared a great big pile of fly-tipping from some of the neighbouring houses. Now we’ve cleared the historic rubbish (trampoline, table football, tarps etc.), we’ve taken photos so the residents can be contacted to pursue any fresh dumping.
Removing all this rubbish, did result in some rather comic loading of the baty trailer, packing it around the tools. To make it easier to spot the blue motorscythe, I suggested we stick a stripy red and white bobble hat on top…
Thank you to everyone for all their hard work.
