We carried out a bonfire of all dead material created at the start of October by the TCV, and our volunteers, clearing the hedge and cutting back the bramble. We picked a dryish day and came prepared with fire lighters and kindling and before long it was really going. There was a lot of material to burn but with the help of a trusty team from the ASHE group the dead branches, bramble and laurel was all burnt. Well done!
We set up a fire site and then carefully lifted material into the fire – this way no hedgehogs or other animals could get accidently incinerated or burnt.
The fire was allowed with kind permission of the farmer who has been very supportive of all our work at Florence Pond.
