Our first 2021 work party is on Sunday January 3rd, meet by the container 08.45am finish at 12noon. Bring a hot drink and a snack for the break time.
1. We are planning to continue the work on lake 3 clearing more willow stumps. Waders or wellies good for this task and rubber/waterproof gloves
2. We also and plan to cut a section of reeds on lake 2 (wellies essential or if you have waders that's even better). We have pallets to stand on to stop you sinking into the lake! Heavy duty gravel type rakes would be useful if you have any to bring gardening gloves too.
3. If you don't have wellies or waders the meadow still needs more raking off and debris moved to the piles of scrub. Grass rakes would be helpful for this job Gardening Gloves too.
Social distancing rules will be adhered to and if you do have any specific concerns please speak to either Mike or Duncan
