Bright and early the Network Rail De-Veg team turned up shortly after 7.00 a.m. to prepare for the day in the mist. Fortunately by the time most got going it had turned into a glorious sunny day. There were 28 volunteers in all on site and a huge amount was achieved with the experts using chippers, chainsaws and brushcutters and the rest clearing up and preparing for the chipper.
Absolutely delighted with what they achieved, it would have taken the Group weeks to clear that amount and we now have a fabulous new habitat for wildlife. Huge thank you to Network Rail for a tremendous benefit for our endeavours to make Ashlawn Cutting special for all those who enjoy it now.
