Corporate Team Building or fun in the sun?

On Friday 2nd August the Costello Medical Group had a day out of the office and on to the meadow. We gathered on Sheep’s Green Nature Reserve and had a quick de-brief for the task ahead. We wanted to dig a pond in one of the historic water ways on the site which had become silted up over time. Our aim was to create more opportunities for aquatic plants in this area.

The group enthusiastically rose to the challenge creating a total of three ponds with a channel linking them all together.

Digging in high humidity with high temperatures definitely earned them an ice cream break at Lammas Land play area. After a quick lunch break they were ready to move on to their next task of “de-Ragworting” the New Bit area of Coe fen. They were extreemly efficient at removing this yellow flowered plant but equally vigilant at looking out for the Cinnabar caterpillars that might be munching on them.

With our last bit of energy we weeded around the young trees in that area.

It was a great day and I was deeply impressed by the group’s energy and obvious camaraderie!
