Work Parties restarted Saturday 19th September 2015 and are continuing throughout the autumn and winter into Spring 2016.

The plan for this autumn/winter includes:

1. Cut back some tree growth in the pond area, to open up and maintain views from the footbridge and lay-by

2. Clear new growth along the length of the channel.

3. Cut back Willow regrowth, this has been quite vigorous this year. There is also the growth which we also did not manage to cut back last winter before the water returned.

4. Prune any excess growth along the Corehampton/Winchester road paths. Cut back grass overgrowing the path edge. Clear growth around the hedging plants to see if they are likely to recover from the unexpected mowing.

5. Cut back plant growth in the area where the dredging will be done for the "All Year Water" project. Having lost our main source of funding with the closure of the Fairoak landfill site, we are following up other funding so that we can create the area of permanent water next Aug/Sep.

6. Continuing litter collection

7. When the water returns, keep the sluice clear of debris

8. Clean seats and picnic table of algae and lichen

There may be other items to add once we get going on the work.

If you can attend then please call David Mclean or Barry Jerome who organise the work parties (see 'contacts' on the home page) to add your name to the volunteer list, or just turn up on the day.

Work parties are scheduled weekly and an email is sent out to volunteers with the plans for the following Saturday. If bad weather is expected then the workparty may be cancelled. They are morning work parties starting at 10am for 2 to 2.5 hours. Meet at the Corhampton Road lay-by at 10am.
