As part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, some pupils from Portfield School volunteered their time in the pouring rain to start on some path clearing. This involved pushing back the encroaching grass and mud and has already shown just how wide our paths actually are before nature tried to take over.
They will be working for a couple more days later this month so please give them some encouragement if you pass them.
On Sunday 4th August a group of hard working volunteers acheived an excellent start to the racecourse path clearing.
In 2 hours we generated 4 trailer loads to go to the tip and the ‘nature’ path on the South side is now much more passable. There is still work to do though (brambles don’t give up that easily) so we may be calling for more volunteers soon.
Our special thanks to the volunteers for their time and effort:
