It was something out of a Bear Grylls programme at the marina today, as a dozen students from the arboriculture course from Moulton College undertook some tree surgery. For us, it was certainly exciting although it did looked pretty hairy as they niftily climbed as high as they could to reach the top of the trees to start sawing! We were assured that all safety precautions had been taken, which was a relief. The lads did some excellent work getting rid of the dead wood and already the trees are looking much better after their trim.
Whilst all this was going on two or three boaters came for a tour, and we even managed to get our heads around the card machine. All in all, a great day down at White Mills.
