Current Workday Notice – 21th May  2022

 

We will be holding a workday this Saturday 21th May 2022 from 10:00 at Lock 1 .

Our planned work: The same work as the last day of cutting the lawns either side of the first lock. Additional work will be done on ivy further up the waterway.

The last day: The council had cut the road side lawn at lock 1 so a nice little saving of petrol. The river side one needed to be cut.  Work resumed cutting ivy waterside, further of the channel.

Volunteers always welcome.

We provide free magazines, produced by our parent group and give them to all takers, drop by if such might take your fancy.

Hope to see you along on Saturday,
