Hedgerow Planting at Bisley Church, Saturday 18th November 2023

Thanks to everyone who helped to plant the hedgerow on a very soggy day.  It was muddy which meant that some of us had to be pulled out when our boots got stuck in it!  But lots of fun was had and the task was completed quickly so plenty of time for a very welcome hot cuppa and hot cross bun!

Hmm...not sure that it's straight! 

Oh no...we've got one too many!

We had more volunteers than this when we started.  Hope we haven't lost them in the mud.

  420 saplings later...job done!


...and some muddy boots to be cleaned!
