Knighton Tree Allotments Trust talk and AGM on THURSDAY 25TH APRIL 2013 from 7.30–9.30p.m. at THE OFFA’S DYKE CENTRE.
There will be a talk on “Woodlands in Wales” by Guest Speaker KATH MCNULTY the CONFOR NATIONAL MANAGER FOR WALES
KTAT manages woodlands to allow its members and volunteers access to affordable woodland products such as firewood, timber, fruit and nuts. In coming together and sharing and learning woodland skills we aim to manage local woodlands sustainably and for the benefit of wildlife as well as our members. Do come and meet us to find out more about volunteering with KTAT and hear Kath update us on Welsh woods.
On 12th to 14th April we will have a heavy horse working at moving some trees to a place where we can burn them. These have been cut down to improve the visibility of the castle site itself, with the advice of Cadw, and now need to be removed and burnt off the site.
Volunteers are needed over these days, but mainly on the Sunday 14th April, to assist in this work. IF YOU COME PLEASE ENSURE YOU CHECK IN WITH THE SUPERVISOR BEFORE STARTING!
The horse handler is Nick Burton of Llanfair Caereinion who says that people are welcome to come and watch and admire the horse but he says:
if people touch the horse (which they are welcome to do at recognised break times when she is tied up and not attached to equipment or trees) they should wash hands before eating etc. The risk of infection from Elza are slight but I feel I should alert you to this.
This is an excellent opportunity to see a working horse in action.
