Work Party News

21 January 2015

On 21 January none of our LA teams could offer us work, so instead a few of our group organised small teams to do a bit of clearance and/or repair work.

Team 1 – cutting back holly completed

 

Team 2A : steps & kissing gate clearing completedTeam 2B : path & WMP clearing completed

Team 1 : 21 January
Bob Rainsley, Bernard and John Aylmer walked ACW in the reverse direction from the Greenway to Meriden.

John A tells me “I think I can safely say there should be no issues course-wise on this stretch come the Challenge. However it did surprise us just how boggy the course is in places, particularly towards the Greenway”.

Team 2 : 24 January
Nick Meynell walked and cleared the part of A Coventry Way route from the steps coming up to the A46 bridge though to Stareton. Tasks completed and photographed included :

Slashing and clipping the steps and kissing gate up to the A46 on ACW

Clearing (muddy) footpath up to Stareton, path now widened and WMP visible

A number of useful tasks well done. More volunteers welcome to plan & get small volunteer teams together when similar situations arrises again.
