Path Repair

Thursday, September 27th 2012

An eager team of volunteers arrived in the early morning sun to help out repairing flood damaged paths along the Easy-Access Route and Risedale Beck.

Stone was barrowed around the reserve to the damaged bridges and washed out paths.  With everyone working hard the Red Route was soon back in action.  Attention was then turned to repair work along Risedale Beck; this route is now back to normal as well.

The recent flooding has highlighted some drainage issues around a few of the paths.  Another of the jobs completed today was opening up old overgrown channels and pipes to help clear the waterlogged ground.  Thank you to everyone who has been in to help today, the reserve has certainly benefited.

How lucky we are to have the dedicated band of caring volunteers who can turn their hands to almost anything on the reserve.  My thanks to you all.
