Current Workday Notice – 17th September  2022 – Lock 1

 

We will be holding a workday this Saturday 17th September 2022 from 10:00 at Lock 1

Our planned work: Tidying up around the Oldbridge Sealock. We may also continue our ivy work.

The last day: A big job was done at Lock 1. The joints between the paving there, were cleaned. Cleaning of our kerbing next to the greenway by the Lock was also done. The Lock chamber was also cleaned of weeds growing from its stonework.

Volunteers always welcome.

We provide free magazines, produced by our parent group and give them to all takers, drop by if such might take your fancy.

Hope to see you along on Saturday,
