We are delighted to have adopted a field from the National Trust to restore and maintain.
Situated a short walk from the office on the beautiful cliffs at Le Bigard, the field is home to a beautiful old oak tree, bluebells and a scenic sea-view.
We’ve taken on this project as we wanted to give something back to our beautiful home-parish of Forest and this lovely field has been a great spot for us to spend our lunch hours. We look forward to making use of the spot for meetings, team activities and weekend picnics, and we welcome other islanders to enjoy it too.
We had our first session at Le Bigard at the start of the summer, clearing bracken from an overgrown plot opposite the Resolution IT field, helping to clear some space for the recently planted oak trees to thrive.
Then, last Friday, a group of volunteers took to our field to give it a bit of care as we enter Autumn, clearing bracken, lifting the low-hanging oak branches and trimming the overgrown hedges.
An area of natural beauty and rich biodiversity, the fields at Le Bigard benefit from being left to grow wildly throughout the year, allowing native species to thrive. So, all the spot needs is a little TLC a few times a year to help prevent bracken from taking over and to keep the areas accessible for the public to enjoy.
Resolution IT thanks the National Trust of Guernsey for trusting the team with this beautiful spot.
