Steps fence cleaned and renovated
The Embsay with Eastby Nature Reserve has seen steady progress since our last report. Here's an update;-
Students of Craven College have been busy with the following tasks :-
Removal of ivy and other growth from the fencing,
then renovating and repairing it where necessary.
In the meadow area, cutting back a tree (almost pollarding) which was creating an amount of shade.
In the woodland, thinning out of excessive ivy, brambles, tree saplings and seedlings.
various steps on the external path.
Re-protecting the bench seat inside the entrance.
Finally, clearing the pond of vegetation, which was then laid around the pond edges, to give any creatures a chance to return to the water.
We are grateful
to Craven College's Dr Simon Midgley, tutors Michael Myers and Caroline Blackwell with their students who made a valuable contribution, carried out with much zest and enthusiasm!
