Cancelled – Meeting 17th March

We have decided to postpone the meeting. One of the main purposes was to organise the Quiz fund raiser. Because of the Coronavirus issues we cannot really have the Quiz until the situation is a bit clearer.

We will re-arrange as soon as things have settled down.

Action – Sally please can you cancel the provisional bookings with the village hall. Thanks

Some of the great work done this summer !

There has been some great work done over the last couple of months on a number of routes including Nunnery Lane (K), Crammer Gutter (F), Prescott (C), Hinton (A) and Keepers Cottage (R).

Many thanks to all who have helped and especially, Steve, John and Ted.

Also many thanks to Arthur for repairing a rather nice but broken brush cutter which has been donated for us to use by Colin and Clare (bottom of Factory Lane).

Crammer Gutter – Stoning by bottom gate and new gate post and stoning by top gate

Hinton – Digger work to clear path

Nunnery Lane – Digger, dumper work to clear drains and path and stoning.

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!
