Hopefully everyone is still ok for Saturday? The car park is quite small so if you can car share then great, if not you might need to park on Lawrence Lane.

Thanks

A bit of a chilly start to our lane clearing endeavors on Buckland Lane this morning, with the temperature hovering around 1 degree and intermittent snow showers giving us a light dusting on the trees and bushes, however in spite of the weather there was a great turnout of Surrey TRF volunteers eager to help out.

We started at Lawrence lane and worked our way up the hill pruning back the overhanging shrubbery, we were starting to think that we would be able to make a relatively quick job of it until we got to this fallen limb. Luckily the Estate Manager from Buckland Estate showed up while we were tackling this obstacle, so he was able to see just how hard working our chaps are ;)

The lads got stuck in taking it apart branch by branch.

Thankfully it didn't take too long and this was the end result.

We continued up the hill until all was clear.

Well done lads! Is the lane open to traffic? Or TRO'd at the moment?
