Fresh air and Fellowship
After a long wait, some of our Woodland Working groups have been able to get back outside again.
With new safety measures in place, we were delighted to welcome back our volunteers at Cefn Ila and Bryanu.
Cefn Ila is just outside Usk in South East Wales. The woodland working group is run by Sasha on behalf of our site manager Rob Davies. This site has a rich history which you can read about in our recent article, ‘Cefn Ila: A rich history and a fruitful future in South East Wales’.
Volunteers got involved with clearing a fallen tree. And you can see their newly issued first aid certificates displayed with pride!
Brynau is just outside Neath in South Wales. This fairly new group were forming in March this year. After a long wait they are finally able to start doing their bit at this exciting site. You can read about this site in our article, ‘Largest ever new woodland to be created by the Woodland Trust in Wales’.
Volunteers helped to cleared drainage pathways to reduce winter flooding and removed some of the waste fencing debris which had been left in the woods.
Many thanks to Sasha Ufnowska, Ed Tucker, Chris Matts and Rob Davies for the photos and information.
