Saturday 10th September - Work Parties restart on 17th September 2011

Work parties will restart on Saturday 17th September. An all day work party is planned for those able to stay all day, or just come along to the morning or afternoon session. Meet at 10am at the footbridge for the morning session, or 2:00pm for the afternoon session.

We are looking for volunteers for the work parties. If you can attend then please call David Mclean who organises the work parties (see 'contacts' on home page), or just turn up on the day.

Work parties will then take place every Saturday after this. This should give several months of working before the water returns.

The work required has been assessed and prioritised and detailed work plans are being put together. The priorities are:

  - Clear the undergrowth north of the footbridge in the channel and up to the fences of the houses
    on St. Bonnet Drive

  - Dig a pilot hole in the silt at the end of the pond near the sluice to gather information for the
    proposal to remove silt from this end of the pond

  - Trim the trees to open up the viewing area from the lay-by so that views are possible to the
    Palace ruins
