This weekend we had two visiting groups, London WRG and KESCRG.
It was their annual joint Christmas party so they canalled by day and turkeyed by night.The worksite was Whitminster and the task was to continue the tree and scrub clearance along the line of the canal. We were amazingly lucky with the weather both days. There was plenty of mud and there were plenty of overcast skies but it stayed dry.
Workboat Stuart earned his keep and enabled us to get to overhanging and submerged branches that you just could not reach from the shore.
And, of course, being a winter work party a decent fire is almost compulsory.
Thank you to WRG and KESCRG.
