Yesterday I was joined by the Blackwater Valley Thursday volunteers and Richard Horton from the Tices volunteers group at Tices meadow. The purpose of the task was to continue the clearing and work on the river Blackwater for rivers week. The willow along the stretch of river we were working on is cleared on a yearly basis and as you can see from the picture what it would look like if it was not done.
I would like to thank Janet and Matt and the Tices volunteer who’s name eludes me for volunteering to put on the waders and work in the river, as you can see from their faces they did not really want to go into the river.
Many thanks again for all of your hard work and I look forward to seeing you all back at Tices for the Path install in late October.
