On Tuesday Andrew, Jenny and I were joined by volunteers at the Brookfield section of BV Path. There were two key tasks, firstly to fence off an area of the river where the bank is slowly eroding. And secondly to remove a large leaning / hung-up Willow which Stu has had his eye on – I’m sure he was sad to miss it’s fall.
The fencing was rather a muddy job but we all got stuck in. Many thanks to Paul and David whom were unlucky enough to help me wheel barrowing the gravel down the path which seemed to get longer with every load. The end result was sturdy and looked great thanks to the experience in the group.
Mean while it was all excitement with Jenny, Andrew and the winch as the willow hit the deck. The path was closed by banksmen Chris, Melvin and Duncan and I think they rather enjoyed the show. All we heard was a massive thud.
Thank you again to everyone! A very productive day.
