New Dredge Crew recruit

by:Bob H. 

The working up to speed of Patricia continues as we gain more experience and develop our techniques.  Today above Ryeford we continued clearing along the offside of the channel. 
The silt here is well compacted and contains a little foreign debris as seen here. 
Today we were joined by a new recruit.  Small in stature but big on detail and compatibility. He doesn’t argue with the Instructor and keeps his hands firmly in his pockets! 
He’s not very good at making tea though, despite full PPE including life jacket, high viz and helmet with CCT logo. Tim K had to show him the best way while Bob H was at the controls. 

So everyone, say hi to Derek the Dredgman.   Lovingly and skillfully made by Sam Sirett.
