The first weekend volunteer group made the most of the August fine weather and got cracking with management tasks in the Community Woodland.
Five volunteers spent the morning cutting back overhanging branches and rank vegetation alongside Gynack Road to improve access for walkers and cyclists along the roadside.
The team started work controlling the non-native snowberry that is spreading in the woodland to encourage native plants and enhance views of Gynack Burn.
Litter was also collected along the route, so all in all a useful start to the management work.
There is lots more to do and we are planning future sessions in the coming months. No special skills are needed, and tools are provided so look out for notices of future dates and come and join the team!
