One day at a time
Our 'day groups' as we call them (clever eh?) normally come on the same week, with a different day each. A recent week saw groups from Ambleside campus of the university of Cumbria, Kendal College, Littledale Hall Therapeutic Community (a residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre), the South Lakes Conservation Group and the Fix the Fells voluntary lengthsmen all work on the same stretch of hedge.

So 'lots' is the answer to the original question. But you wouldn't know it to look at the hedge. We pride ourselves in helping everyone who works with us to do good work they can feel proud of and walking along it now you just see one well laid and tidy hedge. A great result for all concerned!
