TREES and scrub was cleared from three limekilns in woodland near Cleeve this weekend.

The activity was the first thing done by a new volunteering project launched by Goblin Combe Environment Centre.

The first batch of volunteers met on Saturday to clear the area around the centre and make the woodland more accessible to visitors.

New volunteer Lloyd Hamilton said: "It was hard work but we were able to do as much as we liked.

"I really enjoyed the fact people of all abilities were able to get involved and I will definitely come again."

The project was set up thanks to a grant from the Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund.

Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer can call Rachel Jones, the centre's learning co-ordinator, on 01934 833723 or email rachel.jones@goblincombe.org.uk
