Where the Blackwater Valley path (BVP) meets the Aldershot roundabout a gate needed some fencing installed to provide a barrier from the main road.
I had the enthusiastic and determined team of Adam Bates, Adam Gates, Oscar and Alan to help me through the windy and cold conditions. Having a variety of different experience levels in the group we were able to share our knowledge, making the task as educational as possible.
We decided to bolt the new fence to the existing gate, as it provided us with a strong foundation and easy future maintenance.
After a mornings work we successfully completed the fencing and stood back to admire our hard work.
Spending the time to over engineer the new fencing will hopefully pay dividends and help to maintain the safety of the site for many years to come.
