Children from Henllys Church in Wales & Coed Eva Primary Schools and 1st Henllys Scouts have made a great difference to the LNR this year. Our winter work starts up again this week with the After School Eco Club from Henllys Church in Wales making signs from greenwood harvested on the reserve. They'll be along the lines of the new signs to the otter holt:
We'll collect, split the wood, tidy it up and then draw information on the waymarker posts, while the posts will have a spike put on them with an axe.
To help with any greenwoodcraft work, yesterday we built a device which will help to rive, shave and mortice wood. The children will also get a chance to use these devices over the winter.
In the next few weeks, we'll be finishing off and installing the hedgehog boxes and either making another otter holt or constructing a bird hide with the Eco Club too; exciting times.
