The 22nd of January was the first Pudsham workday of the year, and the weather proved to be dry but cold. Standing around was not the order of the day, so after a short talk on safety and what was planned for our 21 loyal conservation volunteers, they got stuck in.

The work included the removal of willow saplings, gorse and general scrub from Sylvia’s Field, which is the DPA’s latest acquisition and adjoins our other wild flower meadows.

A great amount was achieved on the day thanks to our brilliant volunteers, no praise is too high for their commitment and ability, the DPA is very lucky to have such a great team.
