July 2015 work day

12th July 2015. Today we installed a new step on a slope to the west of the main pond. This slope gets particularly slippery and difficult to negotiate in the wet weather. We may install  further steps here later in the year but this was our last usable 'step' so we need to buy some more sleepers. . Litter picking was also carried out as usual and some tidying up and watering in the Walled Kitchen Garden. Here are a few pics of the day's step building: The first shows the perils of allowing an inexperienced wheelbarrow pusher loose! More training required maybe. No one was injured.

Work party update

This year we've been carrying out various tasks in the park. Each month we've carried out a litter pick. Much to our disgust we collected over 150 bags of dog poo in the Northern end of the park, most from one area and we suspect this to be the work of one person, and presumably their dog, or dogs, as most of the bags were small Tesco ones. We've cleared fallen tree branches, repaired fences, cleared the ditch alongside the main bridleway down to Lower Bedfords Road.
