Volunteers spent a morning working hard to smarten up Crecy Hill nature reserve.

Members of Oxford Conservation Volunteers started working on the area, which lies on a slope overlooking the River Cherwell, the Oxford Canal and the main railway line north from Oxford, in September.

Yesterday, volunteers including Tracy Evans, pictured, returned to finish clearing scrub and hawthorn from the reserve, which is managed by Tackley Parish Council.
