Local work party completes stream clear by their plot


Alan Pordage and family have completed the clearance of the stream formerly blocked by bullrushes adjacent his plot.

Alan, with the help of his daughter, Donna and her husband have completed the work started in May, to open up the stream which has been blocked for 15 years or more. The bullrushes are being composted in the enclosure at the end of the main drive, set aside for this specific purpose.

The earlier work cleared one side of the stream and linked to similar clearance by Noel Perkins further west along the stream carried out last year.  The new tenants of plot 12, Dee and Nathan Thomas, plan to extend the work to the east by their plot later in the year.

The committee congratulate them for this important initiative intended to restore and enhance the site.
