The hedging vols in St. Mellons turned out on Saturday in Old St. Mellons for the final touches to the hedge and a celebratory picnic.
Before we started, Cllr. Jane Rogers performed a solo litterpick and dog poo pickup around parts of the park. We knew it was quite bad around here for dog poo as we had to tiptoe around several piles while hedging.
All that remained was moving all the brash to one site. Following this we cut the stakes down to the height of the binders, or hetherings, and wove in any sticking out pieces of hedge.
Following this we enjoyed a picnic to celebrate the end of the hedging as well as seeing leaves emerging from stretches of the hedge showing that we'd done a good job.
