July – no two days the same

Weather wise it’s been a contrast from one end of the month to the other and also for the variety of the work of the volunteers on Gower in July.

Welcome to our new monthly volunteering blog – a quick insight into what our fabulous volunteers have been doing over the month. It’s been such a busy month it’s split into two halves, part 2 out next week.

We started the month with our first working holiday of the year. Staying at the Lodge, they travelled to Rhossili every day to undertake a variety of tasks in what proved to be a very wet week! They cleared the ditch on the side of the path down to Rhossili Beach, and made dormice boxes in our workshops at the Farm. The group tried their hand at some dry stone walling (more like wet stone walling!) and undertook a flower survey in the Vile. Their last day was spent litterpicking and repairing gates and fences – a very productive and varied week. We look forward to our next working holiday in November.

The Saturday volunteering group (who meet on the first Saturday of every month) spent a day at Whiteford. Working with Gareth from CCW they undertook fence repairs and litterpicking.
