The hills are alive with the sound of… hard work!

One chilly Saturday morning a small team from Your Ideas Spectrum Club descended upon the Lickey Hills to help clear the heathland areas with the Lickey Hills Society.


As you can imagine the weather conditions were not the best but it soon warmed up once we got into it! The company was good and spirits were high and we were warmly welcomed into the group.

If I had a pound for every tree/gardening/wood pun or joke I heard throughout the morning I wood have been a happy lady! Ben and Mick were definitely on top form keeping us all entertained.


Ben also took full advantage of a good photo opportunity…


It wasn’t only enjoyable but a great workout too, some members were comparing it to a session at the gym!

One of our members is hoping to join in with some of the weekly sessions ran by the rangers which is great.


We are hoping to head back again to volunteer when we get a chance as it was thoroughly enjoyable.

The details of the group and when they meet are on their website –
