October visit by CMS volunteers

Last week Wednesday volunteers from the Country Management Service visited Carpenters Wood to take the lead in the widening and scalloping of the main ride which runs roughly east to west through the woodland. The ride management and scalloping work is taking place over successive years (as detailed in our 5 year GAP plan) along the south-facing side of the ride, which will benefit most from increased levels of sunlight that are so valuable in enhancing biodiversity along the woodland edge. The pictures were all taken by CMS. Thanks to everyone who turned up to lend a hand!
