On a gloriously sunny morning, the volunteers assembled in the Hidden Lock site in Clydach before separating into several small, socially distanced group to undertake a variety of tasks.

Martin decided that today was the day to return regular to volunteering and soon busied himself tidying up his beloved wildflower garden.


Gill and Gareth the Younger made a grand job of tidying in and around the tool stores.

Isaac operated a one-man heavy haulage business transporting stones from the Hidden Lock to the Canoe Store.


John the Rubbish was hard at work as usual.

Bob the Boat added hoops of tent poles to hold up the tarpaulin over the new work boat.


John G collected some lovely trestle tables that had generously been provided by Dobbies Garden Centre. We are indebted to Stephen Gallivan and Neil Barry for facilitating this.

Another enjoyable day with excellent weather meant that many small but important tasks were achieved. We now need to consider those larger jobs that have necessarily been in abeyance for almost six months.
