Wed 2nd June 2010 - Firestone Copse, Havenstreet.

We had the usual excellent turnout and a beautiful warm bright day, a lovely venue and guess what, the usual pile of Limestone chippings to be laid to reinforce a path!

One task was laying some pipes to form a couple of small culverts in dips in the path and then covering them with some of the chippings hopefully to secure them against the winter floods. Then the path needed reinforcing in several places where it was muddy and the ditches were cleared of obstructions to help water flow and reduce the risk of flooding the path.

Another task was cutting small fir trees growing as secondary growth, as they were never going to grow properly and would hinder the main growth.

The tasks were successfully carried out and everyone enjoyed a lovely morning in a lovely setting.

Many thanks to Colin for the text this week.
