With quite a few people away from Bickleigh Vale for the day, we focused on a few areas rather than the whole road.
From the Lane to the turning circle Karyn and Chris raked up the leaf and bark debris created by recent strong winds. The original Sonning northern boundary post and rail fence (now Abbotsley boundary) was lifted from its side where its been lying for many years and held in place with star pickets. With a bit of weeding and light pruning to keep the road clear, It all looks much tidier.
Fred, Allan and Jan tidied up the 'triangle' and removed an old, disused and obscured metal arch from the roadside verge outside Whilstlewood before Allan demonstrated his pole sawing skills to clean up some of the dead wood along the lane.
Josh got stuck into the dead wood on the Bickleigh Vale arch cotoneasters - much better than them falling on someone or their car! A bit of light prune of the more intrusive shrubs to keep them off the road and then off to Devon Cottage for morning tea to finish up.
