Work Party Day at Canal Wood
Woodland Working Group at Canal Wood, Newry were able to dodge the bad weather at the weekend to make it out on site for a task day. Joining the group for the first time yesterday was new volunteer Katherine.
Long standing group member Bruce helped Katherine get started showing her how to coppice the willow the group planted as pegs about 5 years ago and she did a great job working with the saws which was a new skill for her.
Lots of tasks were tackled on the day with a few captured on camera below!
