The south side of the site was lacking sunlight during the growing months, so plot holders got together during the winter to prune and clear offending trees,the path has been widened and leveled for trolley access and at last the we have started to develop the Bluebell Wood biodiversity area.
Despite the weather this years Halloween Fright Night was the best ever with an estimate of around about 80 -100 people attending , volunteers worked hard in adverse weather conditions all week to make the site look so good especially Tony Thorne who despite his flu made the Community Barn so accommodating and weather proof..
As previously posted on this site our Fox cubs this year were poisoned by something and all three of this years litter died and the resident adults seem to leave the site.As a result the bottom of the site became overrun with Rabbits but three large healthy Foxes have been observed behind the biodiversity garden, I think these may be the cubs from last year as I have noticed they have the same characteristics and behavior patterns that I observed whilst filming them last year
