Little Tree Cull

Just a quick reminder that The Tree Cull is taking place this Saturday 28th on Harden Moor, if your planning on come along to help us remove some of the saplings in an attempt to help encourage heather growth on the moor.

The gate to the bridleway will be open please drive up to model flying car park. We will be setting up a gazebo where Tea and Coffee along with some barbequed food will be available, please come and say hello.
We have received some help full tips and advice from Country side Services on how to approach the task. Basically it’s a case of pull out the smaller sapling were possible and leave the roots exposed to dry out. Larger saplings can be cut down, but will require the root trunk treating with the round up which has been supplied by Brad Met within 15 minutes, we have everything needed, just ask.
We will at this first stage be collecting the cut wood into several piles, some of the wood will then be shredded and put back on the moor, and some will be cut up and stacked and allowed to rot, to encourage wild life. If you would like to take some of the wood to burn at home, let us know and we will help get it closer to your transport.
Whilst we have tea coffee and some food which you’re very welcome to come and help us with, if you have anything you would like to pop on the barbeque please feel free.

First Aid app


Thanks to the bmfa for the information on this app, I highly recommend you download it to your phone and like me hope you never need it.

Our sport of model aircraft flying has a long proven track record of being a very safe sport to participate in, however accidents can happen or we or our fellow fliers may be taken ill at anytime. Would you be able to help if someone was injured or taken ill? First Aid training is very worthwhile and should be considered and it is always wise to have a personal first aid kit with you and a well stocked kit available at clubs if possible.

Having the knowledge to be able to help when these things happen could save someone’s life, there are now some free First Aid apps that you can download to your smart phone with lots of step by step guides explaining what to do in the event of medical emergencies. Consider adding one to your phone. Hopefully you will never need to call on them but they could prove very useful if needed.
