On 12 October, 11 Co-Ownership staff took part in the Volunteer Love your Landscape Day organised by Business in the Community in partnership with Out There Services. The aim of the day was to take care of the environment and in the process give back to the communities and spaces which we all share.
The volunteers took part in clearing a Motte and Bailey in Mount Stewart, County Down which included clearing and burning invasive Rhododendron, Laurel and general woodland scrub. It is hoped this will allow access to the area in the future. The team used loppers and bowsaws to cut the material which wasn’t always as easy as some made it look! The mantra for the day was many hands make light work and the efforts were clear to see by the end of the day. A job well done!
