Volunteer workday. Saturday August 5th

Take a chance and brave the showers and squalls forecast for Saturday

 The focus of Saturdays workday will be to maintain all the access to the full length and to ensure all the pier bases remain clear of vegetation. Tasks will including, lopping,  pruning back brambles and shrubs, tree stump removal large and small, shifting some of the debris from pier base 4, removing creeping soil and vegetation from the tarmac areas, litter removal, removing some debris from under the viaduct to the main collecting point. New vegetation is growing out of the pierbases so it would make sense to remove that before it gets re-established. We will also be clearing back some vegetation and bindweed which is choking some areas.

If you can make it, there are lots of blackberries around so bring a tub. Starting at 10:00 am. Finishing at 3:00 come for as long or as short as you can make it. The Kelly kettle will be on for you. Tea, coffee and a refreshment afterwards provided.

Meet: Under the viaduct. The barrier off Newtons Lane will be open from 9:30 am onwards. Tools and protective gloves provided.
