 Under the Gazebo by the display boards are Glyn England's daughter and Grand-daughter
who came to see what we are doing

The photos below are from the other main task , which was coppicing another row of
hazels in the same grove as last year to get a rotation going .
All the trees were cut to form big stools and then were covered with brash
from the branches to protect the new growth from being eaten by deer .
The resulting stakes left over are for use on the hedging days in November

Mendip Society Chairman (Richard Frost) would like to thank everyone who helped
