Works Diary for September



This month has been spent on general maintenance in rather wet conditions. 


Mainly digging out and reducing the ramble runners from the wild flower areas in both the upper and lower dene.



In the Upper Reach we have reduced the bramble runners along the north bank and the area has been regularly litter picked.



In the Middle Reach we have reduced the bramble runners along the north bank and along the southern footpath, the area has been regularly litter picked.


We have also cleared a fallen tree and re-screwed some of the loose anti-skid strips on the bridge.


This area has been regularly litter picked.



In the Lower Reach we have raked up and cleared the grass cuttings on the south side.


This area has been regularly litter picked.



On the Dene Top we have reduced the bramble runners from various areas and cleared the eastern fence of any overgrowth.
