'Perfect Wheelbarrow Weather'

by: Ian Moody

On Friday the SDC Canal Team hosted a group from Ecotricity.  The weather was overcast but dry - perfect wheelbarrow weather, which was fortunate given the sizeable heap of Type 1 aggregate we had thoughtfully supplied.  The task for the day was to construct a towpath alongside Gough's Orchard lock.  One set of edgeboards were already present so installing the other set of boards was soon under way and the wheelbarrow marathon began.

It turns out that Waterways Recovery Group are not the only ones who bring their own cook. Lunchtime barbecue Ecotricity style:

After lunch the energy continued to be expended and the aggregate heap continued to reduce. By close of play the team had shifted around 10 tonnes of Type 1 and were definitely ready for a beer. Of course, we couldn't let them leave without the obligatory team photo:
