Yesterday Ben, Jenny, Mark and I installed a bench between the river and lake at Swan Lake. This is the first Trust Appeal benches to be installed and just in time for Walk the Path on Sunday.
First Mark used the backhoe on the tractor to dig holes for the bench legs.
We then used the tractor bucket to save our backs and lift the solid oak bench into place.
Once the bench was level we concreted in the legs, covered it with soil and Ben tested out just how comfortable it was.
Positive verdict! Why don’t you come down and test it for yourself?
