Crown Estate staff and volunteers have been busy controlling scrub on our heathland at Hopcott recently. We had a successful day on friday the 4th march where 60 people, including pupils from Minehead Middle School and members of the local community joined us on a joint Exmoor NPA, Butterfly Conservation, National Trust and The Crown Estate scrub bash event.
The good work was continued on sunday the 13th march, when we were up there again, this time with Avon Outdoor Group, for an Exmoor National Park help a ranger day.
Both days were enjoyed by all those that joined us- possibly due to the presence of jacket potatoes and marshmallows!.... For details of volunteering see our website, under 'what to do'.
