Babs had the bright idea of inviting all volunteers to a get-together at Hill Farm last Monday morning. Some twenty people attended from all the different volunteer groups, spending an hour talking over points of interest. This was an attempt to unify the volunteers, many of whom rarely have a chance to meet their kindred spirits.
Hill Farm is a tenanted part of the Ashridge Estate with some three hundred acres of arable land and some woodland. It is on the New Road from Ringshall to Northchurch @ SP979101 They have plans to turn it into a rural learning centre , and open it for teas, which has the support of the Trust. A flower meadow is also planned for next year.
The next volunteers meeting is scheduled for Monday 15th August at 11.00am, this time at the Visitor Centre, when refreshments will be provided by our Janet.
