It's Trucked Off!
So the fence around Workhouse Wood has all gone. We dismantled, walked across the common and loaded into huge trucks 6.8 tons of iron! Thanks to Chrissie, Kay Bartlett, Chris Cook, Chris Long and Harry Holmes who responded to my cries for help. The Parks Department, as you can see above, were also extremely helpful.
Thanks, too, to Laurence Pinturault who relieved me to go to the dentist and gave me some most helpful advice. Alison Miller has given me a valuable hour or two, as - of course- has Chrissie. Now, as we go forward on this project I will really need some time to myself, and would be delighted if members can help out. Rest assured the heavy work is over.
The current task is creating the circular 250 metre route through the wood. We are still collecting bags of debris from the site. On Friday we spent ages retrieving loads and loads of discarded (unused!) Incopads. We filled about four sacks with them. Well, St Nick's did specialise in geriatric care towards the end.
