Summit Section work party on Sunday 21 July from 10 am

by: Karen Shaw.

Hi All.  We are holding a scythe training session as part of this work party, with a qualified instructor coming to teach us how to fit and use a scythe (thanks to Louise our star scyther). We hope to purchase some to use on the banks, portal and roundhouse garden in the future, as in the right hands they seem to do an excellent job.

Please let me know if you would like to take part in the training session.

And do still come along if you don't want to do the training as we will be continuing to strim and clear the tow path bank as well as the Roundhouse Garden.

Dates for Summit Work Parties for the rest of 2019:

  • Sunday 11 August
  • Sunday 29 September
  • Sunday 20 October
  • Sunday 17 November 
  • Sunday 15 December 

New members are very welcome to come along for all or part of the day. I usually provide tea / coffee and Christine a cake, but please feel free to bring along your own hot or cold drinks, and a packed lunch or have lunch in the pub.

As usual, please wear sturdy (preferably steel toe capped) footwear or wellington boots and stout clothes. Long sleeves and trousers are recommended to avoid nettle stings and insect bites. Gloves and all other PPE are provided along with all necessary tools, apart from chain saw equipment.

The site is reached by a well sign-posted AND NOW TARMACKED track to the Tunnel House Inn on the right, as you come down Tarlton Road out of Coates and after a tight bend under a railway bridge. Postcode is GL7 6PW. On arrival at the pub car park, please park on the right.

Look forward to seeing you.
