25th February 2018 – Melford Hall

First visit of 2018 to Melford Hall saw us helping the property with some smaller jobs that needed doing as part of helping getting ready for opening in about a month’s time. This included preparing the areas that we dug out the pampas grass from ready for grass seeding, moving piles of rubble and soil (including sifting the soil to get the stones out!), willow-weaving in Lord Somerset’s garden, path weeding, bramble cutting, and ivy removal from the front wall.

It was a sunny day, but a cold wind is what you can’t see in the photos! Well done everyone who came out today.
