Killerton # 439 19th October 2019.


Joint parkrun/National Trust Working Party.
Many thanks to all those who supported this activity after yesterday's event. The group under the guidance and supervision of our good friend Tommy Muncie, headed out to Park Wood( the wooded downhill section on our route), to attack the Rhododendron along the trail. Although a lovely plant in gardens, out in the woods it is a real invasive problem and requires constant attention. The members of the working party worked with enthusiasm and gusto and successfully cleared many areas. Tommy, was delighted with the work that was achieved.
It may well be possible to arrange another working party next year. So if you missed out this time do keep an eye open for information about future working parties.
