.....with care as the work of laying in the mix is ongoing...will be completed by Wednesday evening.
There were three of us on site today bright and early,Sean and Janis and myself.
Both are part of a four man team shared between the Marlfield Village
Committee,St.Patrick's Well Association and ourselves,the Two Bridges Partnership Forest Walks Ltd.
We went walkabout on the Glenbawn/Green trail and as we ambled I pointed out the work we will be engaged in over the next while:-
a....laying a path inside the boundary wall using old mortar and stones from the wall to the gate at the west end;
b....painting the fence and the old gate;
c....spreading the fallen and cut branches throughout the floor of the woodland;
d....keeping the paths and tracks clear of fallen boughs and branches throughout the woodland walks;
e....creating a seat around the Norway Spruce from fallen tree boughs;
f....making Tree Name Tags from stumps by cutting sections & etching in the tree name;
g....building a rising step on the top end of the eastern zig-zag mimicking the existing lower steps;....
The end of April should see most of the above tasks completed to everyone's satisfaction!
