Great turnout for Workparty -10 Aug 19

Many thanks John, Gill, John, Sandra, Steve, Yvonne, Pip, Sally, Clare, Chris, Jo, Pete and Ted who all turned out in the rain this morning for the work party.

We cleared the Nunnery path and removed the large falling down tree that was blocking the route over the stream. This needed Steve and John’s dumper to provide a safe platform as the tree was wedged against another tree quite high up. We also cleared the path all across the common (Route K) as well as the path and a tree that was overhanging on Route J (back of The Mounts).

Next step will be to take a dumper load of stone to Nunnery Lane to improve the path by the gate and for some digger work to the ditch leading down to the gate. Also the gate could do with a slight adjustment so that it closes more slowly. Spanners will be needed. We will add a post when the date for this work has been decided.

Thanks again to everyone for helping to keep our bridleways safe to use. Many hands make the job so much easier!
