Great day on the greenway today with good weather, a clear work objective and a good crowd of about ten or so of us turning out.
We cleared the north east corner of the second large glade to get it balanced and equal on both sides and moved a picnic bench into it. It looked really good.
We had toasted marshmallows at the end of the day, which was a real treat.
The Environment Agency are going to look at the reed-bed at Potford’s Dam tomorrow and give us some clear direction about how to tackle this. This is why we chose not to do any work down that end today.
Last workday is on Wednesday 30th March and is just a walk along to tidy any obvious bits that are going to snag any walkers and cyclists.
Good work today and a big thank-you to everyone who has been involved, for all of our efforts over the last seven months. I think we can safely say that we made a difference.
Next Sunday workday will be in the latter part of April and workdays will now revert to once a month whilst the nesting season is upon us. We need to keep a check on brambles and nettles in the newly cleared areas, keep the litter in check and record all flora and fauna that we see. We also need to work out how to sort out the drainage problem by The Bear and also plan what we are going to do with the greenway down at that end.
Lastly, our AGM is on Monday 4th April at 6pm at Cawston Grange School in the Tigers classroom. This is left when you pass reception, through the doors, first right and the second classroom on the left. Feel free to come along and add your input.
Well that’s about it.
Hope to see you on Wednesday and at the AGM.
