Snow day @ Boarshaw

After a weekend of heavy snowfall we headed back to Boarshaw for week 2 of our planned improvements. This week we were focusing on improving the main entrance to the site and redefining the pathways.

Our activities for the day were slightly limited due to the snow however we had more than enough work to be getting on with through clearing the site and cutting back the dead Japanese Knotweed. As Lili went about making her slightly leafy looking snowman we started cutting down brambles ready for redefining the path once the ground has thawed.

The only downside to the snow was not being able to get the kellie kettle going at Lunch however the wintery view of the lake and ‘Elf’ style throwball fight distracted us from the lack of brews.

After a week away from Boarshaw due to the icy conditions we’re hoping to return to the site to continue clearing the area and, rather optimistically, seeds have already been bought for sowing later in the year. Watch this space……
