Mini workday on Cawston Greenway

A few of us turned out today and burnt off a load of bramble on one of the banks. Mike from Butterfly Conservation dropped in and gave us some good advice about the reed-bed at the Potford’s Dam end.

Good news – I managed to get to the end of the greenway with the brush-cutter. This means that we now just need to walk down the path and cut back any obvious bits. We also spotted quite a few wild flowers growing in the cleared areas.

Finally got to the end with my brush-cutter!

I positioned one of the picnic benches under the bridge and it looked pretty good.

It was really good to see a cyclist having a rest on the bench, when I looked down from where we were working on the bramble. This made me feel quite chuffed with our efforts.

If you look really closely, there is a person sitting at the picnic bench.

The rest of our efforts on the next workdays have to be on the reed-bed and the bank down to it. This will be a fantastic asset to the greenway.

Thanks all who turned out today.

See you on the next one!
