A few of us spent this past weekend out in the Peaks, working with the Peak Park Conservation Volunteers and carrying out some hedge work near Tittesworth Water.  The weather did its best to keep us on our toes, by switching merrily from sun to hail to rain and back again – but we made it through all of that to get the work done (only having to take shelter once, during the worst of the hail, in a conveniently located bird-hide!).  A hearty meal in The Lazy Trout pub on Saturday night and a warming bonfire during our work on Sunday helped to keep the worst of the chill away – all of that, plus great surroundings and plenty of interesting chat made for a fine weekend!

Yesterday members of SACV were out with the Friends of the Bowdon Bollin to continue with the laying of a hedge along the riverbank path which we started last year.  It was quite a tricky hedge, with a lot of mature growth and some thick trunks to contend with!  But we had a perfect bright winter day for the work and ended in the late afternoon dusk with a good stretch of hedge satisfactorily completed.  There is more to be done along the same part of the riverbank – so perhaps we’ll be back early next year.

This was SACV’s last event of the year, and so we finished off afterwards in the customary manner – with a get-together for mince pies, mulled wine and roasted chestnuts at Elaine’s!

Hedgelaying at Alderley Edge

On a cold but bright winter’s day, what better way to spend it than by getting out for SACV’s first event of the year?   Well that’s what some of us did today – and we were hedgelaying for the National Trust at Alderley Edge.  A very satisfying task, with plenty of interested passers-by, and a warming fire to get us through our lunch break!

Last Sunday SACV members joined the Friends of the Bowdon Bollin to help them in their work to maintain and enhance the footpath along the Bollin.  The task – on a lovely bright November day – was to get stuck into some hedgelaying.
