Everyone has been doing their bit to remove the stubborn ivy from the walls on behalf of West Ayton Parish Council.
Wedding season is upon us, and Sneaton Church is now all set to go. The team have have been busy cutting the grass and doing some general tidying up, to make the church look at its best for the summer.
East Ayton Ivy
Introducing a new team member to East Ayton ivy. Great to see everyone working together, so much that members of the local community were giving some excellent feedback.
Revisiting Sneaton Church
Two weeks ago the team done an outstanding job of clearing up the surrounding areas of Sneaton Church. Unfortunately the areas were covered in rubbish again, but the team haven't let this stop them. Everyone involved showed great resilience and determination, and the area is looking fantastic again!
Tree Planting at Dalby Forest
The Skill Mill have been busy again, this time at Dalby Forest on behalf of The Forestry Commission. Tree planting is a great way for the teams work to be seen for years to come. To work in an area with such beautiful views is very rewarding for everyone involved.
Working alongside the Church Warden in Sneaton
The team have been back in Sneaton. This time, working alongside the warden at Sneaton Church. The fence has had a fresh coat of paint and everyone is pleased with the finished result! The views from the church are great, we were lucky to have some nice weather and we could even see the sea.
Woodsmith Mine Area
The team have been busy at Woodsmith Mine, near Whitby, with the support of Sirius Minerals. The area has been cleaned up with lots of litter picking around the mines as well as cutting back trees in the village of Sneaton, which will protect the drystone walling. Whilst there, the team have been able to enjoy some absolutely stunning views!

Not Just Another Brick in the Wall
A great example of the painstaking work that is dry stone walling - from a member of the North Yorkshire Skill Mill Team who is getting pretty expert..
The Skill Mill Renew The Old Mill
More graft down at the Mill. 20 years of weeds removed and the path is visible! The toilet block is nearly finished too... great work from the Skill Mill team.
Spring Clean Outside St Catherines Hospice
Early this April the team have been removing old shrubbery outside St Catherine's hospice, ready for some fresh planting before the summer.
The Rainbow Centre, Scarborough
'I am writing to say a huge thank you for the work that the team from Skill Mill have done for the Rainbow Centre over the last few days.
They have moved furniture, loaded the van with charity donations, loaded about 150 heavy bags of food and 30 black bags full of presents onto the van, and taken them from the Centre to an empty shop on the foreshore where we are storing them, so they needed to be unloaded again and then hoisted up to the top floor. They came back from there and moved about 20 large heavy trays of food that had to be made into more Christmas food parcels into the room that they had emptied. All this was before they had any breaks or rests..
The work they have done has been to a very high standard and they have been excellently supervised by Mr Paul Creelman. They have worked tirelessly and with such enthusiasm that it was a pleasure to have them here. I could recommend them to any future employer.'
