A good workparty today with about 25 of us out working. Anglia Water had offered to dig out the 2 holes for the posts for the 5-bar gate. When we arrived they had dug one down to 2 feet deep and just started the other. We got the two holes dug down to 3 feet and the posts cemented in. We will now leave them a week to harden. David had made some post tops for the new fence, Richard and Terry put them on. The ladies worked on the ditch and cleared the area behind the pond. The main path was swept clear of leaves again, we now have a new Ryobi petrol blower but the leaves were to wet to use it today.
David's "Listen Up" - He thanked Terry for the cakes, reminded us of what work we had done today. He gave us an update on the First Aid course last Thursday, we now have 10 First Aiders in the group. The "emergency procedures" documents wil be updated with a list of first aiders and contact numbers. David also talked about the litter pick last Saturday. Finally, he reminded us that the first Saturday workparty will be this coming Saturday in the church yard.
