Stepping up to the Challenge

Thursday, January 9th 2014

The Thursday volunteers were back in today and completed several jobs around the reserve including improving a section of parking outside the workshop and installing a new stop for the access gate.

The first of the main tasks was repairing the step to the seed store, which after 20 or so years had rotted through.  This was rebuilt using an old sleeper.

The second task was to build some steps down from the new pond dipping platform to the existing pathway. Measurements of angles and drops were made before returning to the workshop with a plan.  By mid-afternoon the steps were finished and ready to be installed.

The last screw was secured in place and just before the light faded there was time to get a picture of the Thursday Gang proudly showing off their creation.

Thank you all for your hard work today!
