Working Whatever the Weather!

Tuesday, January 2nd 2018

They say that we are obsessed with the weather in this country.  Given the heavy rain that moved in this morning, that's not really a surprise.  It was to the credit of the three volunteers in today that they stuck to the task throughout the morning and continued to move the stone material on to the path to complete one section between bridges on the Moorland. 

This has now completed a section of 110 metres of new surfacing, with much of the material being moved with wheelbarrows from a point where the quad bike and trailer could reach.  The surface has been compressed down using a vibrating plate and at one point was being done in front of an appreciative audience as a family from Leicester walked past.  However, they weren't sufficiently appreciative to join in despite the invitation!

So back to the weather. The rain eased off this afternoon, allowing work to continue in better conditions, but as Storm Eleanor is due to pass through tonight with gusts predicted of up to 80 miles per hour, the moth trap won't be going out tonight.

And back to volunteers.  It is one of our Winter Worky Days on Saturday, and food for lunch has to be ordered a couple of days in advance.  If you are interested, or intend coming along, and have not yet put your name down for this, please could you do so tomorrow so that the food order can be put in.
