Skills Builder - week 7

All about the Rot boxes this week!! We spent Thursday and Friday putting Rot boxes up in the beautiful Cotton Dell Nature Reserve owned by Staffordshire Wildlife Trust. You may have seen some of these boxes - there's some at Deep Hayes and Tittesworth so far too.

Skills Builder - week 6

Busy this week helping to manage a woodland on Thursday by thinning trees to let sunlight reach the woodland floor. This should mean there are lots more plants able to grow because of increased light levels and this will be good for wildlife such as insects, small mammals and birds.

Skills Builder - week 1

Skills Builder is a brand new project funded by the Big Lottery that has started this January. It means that groups, supervised by the rehabilitation service 'fit for work', will be getting lots of practical work done in the Churnet Valley over the next 18 months.
