Yesterday a hoard of 20 volunteers descended on Tices Wood, at the north eastern end of Farnham Quarry. A derilect ditch was rejunvenated to drain off some of the flood water on the old plant site meadow. We forded the mighty River Blackwater with a plank and crates, then set to work clearing the vegetation either side. It was great as the two teams worked towards each other and the full ditch length came into view. Some brave souls also trundled with wellies and waders to dig out the blockages and litter, to open it up to the flooded meadow. The finished ditch was a great success producing a strong flow, which gave us a laugh returning to the truck across the now floating plank bridge. Thank you to everyone for all your help.
