Tuesday Moors Maintenance

Tomorrow 19th June
Most of the sapling planted over the last year are doing well. However at this time of year rapid plant growth means that some have been overwhelmed by vigorously growing vegetation.
Tomorrow the Hawthorns along the NE border in front of Lifestyles down to the East gate.
We might also clear around the spindles by the New hide.
