Ground force...

The villagers in Reach put in a ground force effort last weekend planting a hedge at Reach 24 along the front edge. Funded by the Woodlands Trust and The National Trust. 

There were plans for all day planting, when I arrived at 9.30 things were well underway. I get going at 11.30 to make into Cambridge for a volunteering fair but things were all most complete as you can see from the pics below.

The hedge should provided a nice barrier between the track and the cricket pitch; meaning the fence will not need to replaced in a few years as by then the hedge should be established. It will also provide good extra habitat and berries for wildlife.
