Spring Working Party

13 April 2019

Nine members attended this session and a significant amount of work was able to be achieved.  This session focused on the section of river around the Burgess Bridge and further upstream.

 

Spring Volunteers

A bright and early start, a short briefing on the Burgess Bridge from Treasurer Ian Wynn and the party were ready for the days tasks.  Members Mark Bisson, Charlie Jackson, David Tracy, Stuart Barr, Alan Beilby, Peter Osborne, Ian Barker and Martyn Shaw were all soon    'on task'.

These trees had been lying across the bridge supports for some time following winter floods.

After

Some great work completed and the natural flow under the bridge has been returned to normal.  A lot of sweat and hard work plus a good 'dunking' for Ian Wynn when he stepped off the concrete bridge supports and decided to inspect progress below surface!!
