Work-party this Sunday, meeting at 10am in the Scout hut car park.
The planned activities are:
Extend the spialling by the bridge to prevent bank erosion endangering the ramps
Build a small earth ridge in the sedge bed, to reduce water flow under the path
Check the storm flaps and the netting on the dipping platform
Check and test the scythe-bar cutter
Carry out monthly water sampling and river-fly larva kick-sampling
Litter-pick before stuff gets too hidden by plant growth
Please bring good gloves, boots and spades if you can.
Meet at 10am at the Scout Hut car park. The main task is to repair the surface of the main townside path (the one past the pond towards the Phoenix Trail), where several pot-holes have been forming muddy puddles.
