SUMBA’s 50th Work Party volunteering session - and December Session dates

WorkSUMBA Hedge Laying Work Party – Monday November 23 – 50 NOT OUT!

Eight of the SUMBA team, including CRT’s Roger Birch, braved the frost to complete SUMBA’s 50th volunteering session. Continuing the previous work at two sections of hedge opposite Venetian Marina, the remaining tangle of brambles, wild roses & blackthorn were stripped away. In addition to this preparatory work, a further apprx 10 metres of hedge was laid.

Many thanks to Roger Birch for his continued expertise & enthusiasm. Additional thanks to Robert & Margaret Moon who made a special trip from Anglesey. A special mention must go to John Lomax who turns out to be a secret Hedge Laying Ninja and of course to our canine friends Spike, Lola & Daisy, who gave enthusiastic vocal support & helped to eat the biscuits.
