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!
