|Jo with the log mountain!|
Harper Adams students Jo and Rachel have been carrying out the annual bridge inspections, checking on all of the small footbridges around the estate.
We also had a day of cutting logs in preparation for next week when a group from Barclays bank will be coming to volunteer with us. We cut a mountain of rounds for them to split and the wood will be used to fuel the log burners in reception, the bookshop, the shop and in Lady Berwick's tea room.
Next Monday is an exciting day for the NT Midlands properties - in the evening Calke Abbey is hosting the first Mighty Oak awards to celebrate the hard work and successes of special and unique individuals and teams who work or volunteer for the Trust. Properties were invited to send in nominations to be short listed by the Midlands Leadership Team and Attingham is lucky to have had three of its nominees chosen to attend the awards - all from the wardens department! Colin, David and Phil will be up against each other in the category of 'Unsung Hero' so best of luck to all of them and fingers crossed that we have an Attingham winner - watch this space!
