Crafty Green Boyfriend and I travelled down to Grantham in Lincolnshire on Friday to attend the Woodland Trust Volunteer of the Year Awards ceremony at the Belton Woods Hotel. I was delighted to have been nominated for one of the awards.
On the Friday we arrived early enough to have a dusk walk through part of the lovely wooded nature trail that runs around the grounds of the hotel.
we were tempted to wait to see if a badger would emerge from the hole! We found another hole too, the sett seemed to be quite extensive
So thank you to the Woodland Trust for a great event to recognise the work of volunteers and in particular for shortlisting me from such a large pool of inspiring volunteers!
Also thanks to Belton Woods Hotel for being a great venue, the nature trails were a great draw, but also the food is great and the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. Though the hotel corridors are a maze!
It's worth congratulating when you are on the shortlist for the Woodland Trust Volunteer of the year 'Crafty Green Poet'.
Always nice to have a walk in the surrounding of woodland, especially in Britain. The sign for no entry is for us not unusual, the Scottish and even the English owners of land are much more hospitable than in our country. We have no public footpaths over private land at all.... That is one of the things why I love to cross the Northsea for holidays, walking and exploring nature.
Greetings from Chester. It's nice that you give some of your time to conservation. Glad you enjoyed your walks.
Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.
It is great to recognize the efforts and inspirations!
Many congratulations, Juliet, and well deserved. It sounds as though you had a good weekend and enjoyed the area, too. We spent a couple of nights near Grantham a year ago, and enjoyed the trees in the grounds of Belton Hall - and the National Trust cakes!
