First day of the 2009/10 season

Old tubes gathered, and old volunteers in the background.

First day of our new season, and what are we doing? We are up Merrydale again retrieving stakes and guards. Well, it does need doing. We haven't quite finalised our tree order for this year, as we are still waiting for a cheque to arrive in the post (Kirklees!). Still the weather was pleasant, and maintenance is part of our work. A core of old stalwarts, myself, Philip, Neil and Geoff were joined by special guests Steve and Chelsea, and Neil and Sarah.

Merrydale, and more new sites


Another Saturday up Merrydale. Not quite such nice weather, as you can see from the Philip's and Neil's rainwear. Later on we went and visited some very nice people who would like us to help them plant trees in their  field above Marsden.
