Work Party: Tuesday 14th May 2024

A pleasant day today – no rain, not over-warm. The volunteers assembled at Bridge 8 as arranged but had to abandon plans to reinforce more of the bank as the stone dust had not been delivered. Undaunted, we soon found plenty to do.

Andrew, making a very welcome return, Chris and Rowan sloped soil down to the bags laid last time we were on site. Once nature takes over to re-green the bank, our repair work will be invisible.

Alan W, Martin and Gareth planted willow and other saplings to extend the hedge. Gordon assisted by cutting willow poles that were used to obstruct a dog run that crossed the route of the hedge. Martin genuflected before him.

Moira and Chris trimmed the hedge. Our efforts to lay the hedge in years gone by have really paid dividends.

Andy pulled out a few logs and branches that had accumulated around the bridge.

Sue the Rubbish walked up from Trebanos collecting litter, Anna, Cerys and Paul along the way.

Tea was taken with fruit cake and sponge made by Alan & Jan W. Delicious!

Andrew, Chris and Martin cleared weed around and atop Bridge 8. It needs to be spic and span for the plaque unveiling in a few week’s time.

And finally, can you identify the object in the first photo? How could it have ended up there? Perhaps the second photo offers a clue.

A lovely day to be out and about. Although we could not lay any more concrete bags we found lots of useful things to do.
