If you’ve been to Upper Reelig Community Wood over the winter you’ll have noticed the construction of a wooden structure near the path. If you’ve wondered what it’s for, all is now revealed. Volunteers Sandy Payne and George and Sandra Hogg have just finished constructing a shelter for the wooden xylophone that’s been in the wood for several years. Left in the open it was deteriorating and it needed to be sheltered from the rain.
The shelter has been constructed entirely from timber from the wood at very low financial and environmental cost. The xylophone has been placed underneath to dry out over the summer and we’ll start refurbishment in the autumn. It’ll soon be back to playing condition for anyone that wants to bash out a tune in great surroundings!
