Sunday 31st March 2013. Not our usual work day but we were asked to plant some additional trees in the newly cleared area near to the deer pen and visitors’ centre. 5 of us planted approx 50 trees although we were hampered by the stones and old ‘pathway’. Mattocks were used to break through but some of the area was not suitable. We will have to rethink this.
Also the Essex Wildlife Trust held their very successful ‘Easter Eggstravaganza’ with crafts and an Easter Egg hunt. We had a table at this event selling home made cakes.
We also did a minor repair to the fencing to the east side of the lake and did some ditch clearance and put some hogging on a wet are of one of the footpaths.
