Hard work and hard hats

This year the Duke of Edinburgh students are having their sessions on the Saturday afternoons, separate from the normal weekend work parties. This means that some of the usual volunteers help out at these sessions as well.

The first session was a bit "wet" but everyone got stuck in and enjoyed it.

The second was drier and sunny, and the task was to help clear the stream from the car park pond, that would eventually flow to Abberton reservoir. As the session is only for 3 hours that would have been a bit ambitious! But after splitting into teams, each section was cleared of the banks of bramble, reeds and overhanging branches, along with removing any debris from the stream.

No-one fell in!

7 youngsters worked very hard to clear the stream, following the excellent example of the adults with them. We've already had appreciative comments from walkers, so a big thank you from me as well.
