I’m Jack – a new member of the group – and I’ll be helping maintain the blog this year =)
We’ve been very busy over the winter, and I hope to bring us up to date on events since our last post, while also posting about our recent and upcoming events. Chronological order is for the weak, however, so we’ll start with last week, and go forwards (and backwards) from there.
With the kind support of Mel from Out To Learn Willow we have established cuttings of a variety of craft willows in different colours, to be cut next winter for a small Christmas craft session, and due to produce larger crops in years to come.
Mel has also inspired us to look into the possibility of establishing some willow sculptures on the hill as part of our plan to push a new trail of artworks around Kilvey. Did you know it has been nineteen years since the original sculpture trail was established?
Still plenty to plant – did you know you can keep willow cuttings fresh for a few weeks in the refrigerator, or even freeze them to preserve them for planting later?
Small beginnings. We should see remarkable growth from these little stems by next winter.
Sunday’s Picnic and Task Day – advertised for 17th May has been postponed until Sunday 31st May – more details to follow.

Last weekend we did our yearly clean up around the stream at Pentrechwyth Arch – cut back the brambles, declogged the stream and litterpicked. All spruced up for 2015. Great to see some new volunteers and some great work from the kids. Well done everybody!
