The Field Studies Council joined us again this year with a school group from Ripponden. The group got stuck right in with cutting turf and resurfacing the path.
Coming back for a second year also gave the teachers a good opportunity to see how last years work had started to bed-in and blend in more with it's surroundings.
We were also assisted by other members of National Trust staff from around the property.
This helped give staff who work in different areas of the property a better idea of some of the work that we do, and also gave them the opportunity to try something a bit different to their usual jobs.
We also held monthly work parties for the Fix the Fells volunteers.
These monthly work parties have really helped push the project along over the last two years and a special thanks has to go out to the Fix the Fells volunteers.
The Fell Rangers from the North Lakes have also regularly helped us out.
Since the North Lakes team was newly created this year, it gave them a good opportunity to get involved in a different type of project and helped them learn a few different techniques.
For the second consecutive year we also held our National Trust working holiday up on Gowbarrow.
Four volunteers from last years holiday returned, along with several new volunteers.
Once again a huge thanks to all the volunteers who have helped us over the last two years, as without this help we couldn't have achieved so much. It's been great meeting you all, and perhaps we'll see some of you again in the not too distant future.
