Work Party – Tuesday 23rd May 2023

Another lovely day and another excellent turn-out of volunteers! And another two-pronged attack!! In Coed Gwilym park, Bob worked on repairing the bow of our newest boat, Chris Grav – joined later by David G – tended to the garden and Sue cleaned the barriers in readiness for “Party In The Park” next Sunday.

In the Hidden Lock site, work got underway after a couple of top-level meetings.

Dai cleared up some scrap wood that had been bugging him for a few weeks – it’s so important to have a clear run to the loo once you reach a certain age!

Alan W, much recovered after his dose of COVID – and Chris B gathered stones that the usual suspects added expertly to the by-wash wall.

Andrew beavered away with his steps.

Alan W and Dai added plants to the green corridor. You can see by the expression on Dai’s face that Martin may not have signed the correct paperwork in full.

John Gw and Aled completed erecting the replacement mirrors and signage. This important task will help to ensure safe crossing of the tow-path.

Gordon appears to be banging his head against a wall but is, in fact, making a structure to hold the stop-planks that will be used to hold back water from the dry dock.

Tea was taken with cakes baked by Ronnie.

After tea, all these tasks continued and Aled wetted the wall along the dry-dock laid by James Daley’s stonemason. This was to prevent the mortar from drying too quickly. The wall looks sensational.

And finally, say hello to the canal’s newest residents – Can and Ada Goose. They may have been offering Gordon advice as he is setting off tomorrow to visit his daughter across the pond.

Such a successful day, with the volunteers working at the top of their game.
