Yesterday I was joined by 3 of the BVCP volunteers to help me with the installation of a new Oak bench and to install two new Stag Beetle Stumperies. Visitors may remember the metal bench at the Coleford Bridge end of Gerrys next to the information board by the pond. Looking at the other benches on site this looked a little out of place, we had a one last Oak bench at our depot thanks to the Trust and their fundraising efforts, and were able to use this to replace the metal bench. I feel this is a great addition and in keeping with the look of all of the benches on site.
In addition to the new bench we also managed to get two Stag Beetle Stumperies installed, these are being installed along the Blackwater Valley as part of a project for the Trustees
I think the bench and the Stumperies both turned out very good and hope all visitors to the site can use both the bench and the Stumpery. Many thanks to Assistant ranger John and the BVCP volunteers for their hard work.
