Our first scavenging day of the season was very well attended with 14 people coming to collect wood.
The format remained the same with people bringing their own wheelbarrows and borrowing saws to collect the wood from the previously felled trees – which was mostly ash.
Collection was slightly easier this time as the access tracks were all well maintained paths, and not so far from the car park and there was plenty of wood.
Several people had more than one barrowful; in fact the energetic people had 3 barrowloads! It was a very successful day, which those taking part thoroughly enjoyed.
It is a good way to enjoy the fresh air and get some exercise while finding some reasonably priced wood. The days are always popular with a regular clientele.
