Wednesday 8th February 2017, we welcomed a group of hardy volunteers from Enterprise Cars to work at Change of Scene.
Despite the miserable, grey weather, our volunteers donned wellies and hats and, armed only with shovels, set about tackling the winter mud of the farm.
With the ground being so wet, trimming the hedges meant considerable damage had been done to the alpaca field. This needed urgent attention before the new spring growth of grass.
Fortunately, the volunteers were up to the task and, with a good deal of hard graft, filled in and flattened out the field.
As always, our alpacas were quite curious, but luckily, the volunteers came bearing food. The alpacas never need much encouragement to come and be fed!
The volunteers undertook everything we asked them to do with gusto and good cheer, even when the ground was perhaps not as dry as they might have wished. Not that mud bothers our pig, Boris…
At the end of a hard day of outdoor work, there was time to take a break, and a chance to meet some of our other animals, including Tango, our corn snake. Hopefully, all the volunteers enjoyed the day as much as we did.
We would like to say an enormous ‘thank you’ to everyone from Enterprise Cars for all of their excellent work.
Volunteers make a world of difference to what we can offer our attendees here at Change of Scene. We couldn’t do it without you!
