More trees to cut 🌳

Steve and Simon took down 5 more trees on Saturday – 4 sycamores and an acorn tree. All we roughly 40 feet high so not quite fully embedded but all we’re at risk of pushing a garden wall down.

We have a nice amount of firewood now available that has been placed in the log store at the bottom and back of the stack – THAT was definitely a bit of a back breaker 😔

We also planned the next stage of the cut back where we need to rent a cherry picker type of device to get high enough safely to cut back the bushes. We will also require a wood chipper as we are out of storage options behin the container for the smaller branches etc.

It already looks way better but sadly the existence of the ivy (also mainly removed) has caused a pretty significant impact on the trees and bushes that is now more obvious. Hopefully over time this will fill in.

Elliot Rust – Deputy Head Commendation

Today, we were notified that Elliot has received a Deputy Head Commendation aware for his performance in the recent examinations at school. A great result acknowledging his determination and resilience through the last few months – a really impressive result.

Now, he needs to build on this for year 9 and onto his GCSE’s πŸ™‚
