A gentle workday today with just a litter pick and snipping back bramble, from Potford Dam to the Cawston Bridleway clearing, which is about half a mile. Mike also snipped back nettles at Berrybanks.
A lot of the fast growing plants like nettles are wilting badly and falling into the path. Too hot and a lack of rain, probably.
We also dragged a picnic bench up the bank and back into its place!!
Luckily, because we spent a lot of time reinforcing it a few weeks ago, it doesn’t appear to be damaged.
The quadrant of benches made for the youth to sit and do their thing has been vandalised. We are not fixing this until September. Maybe if anyone knows who is vandalising the benches, they can have a word – these people are spoiling it for themselves as well as everyone else.
Flora and fauna spotted
That’s really it for this week. Still caught up in having to do remedial repairs, which is a little irritating, but hey-ho!! We all have a laugh and stuff, doing what we do.
We have loads of stuff planned for after September but you will have to wait and see. It’s all good stuff and making the path more and more interesting.
Please patron us a couple of quid a month if you like the path and what we are doing. It keeps us in coffee and biscuits. But way more importantly, if you need to connect with people, have a bit of conversation, do something with purpose and meaning, find a bit of mojo, or whatever, you are more than welcome to join us in this great adventure.
Until next week!
