Chairman's ReportHello, it has been a weird year to say the least. However restrictions are now being lifted slowly. We had work parties in April and May - fingers crossed they will continue. A work party report follows this report.
The Reserve is once more bursting into life. The ponds are all full following the wet winter months and the plants and grasses are waking up along with the wildlife.
Hopefully, we will get to hold a Committee Meeting and a long awaited Annual General Meeting (AGM) in July, although when writing this report, it was uncertain when the AGM can be held.
The only other thing for me to say is that I will be stepping down as Chairman in July. If anyone would like to take up the position or any other place on the Committee, please do get in touch to find out more and to put your name forward.
That is all from me. I hope you continue to enjoy the Reserve and most of all, stay safe.
Ray Batty, Chairman
On the Work Party with the Treasurer - 2021We were able to re-start Work Parties from April as the rules on Lockdown eased. There was a good turn-out of volunteers for the first one, not so many for the second in May when there were some short showers. The ditch from Puckles Pond was cleared, including both the pipes that go underneath footpaths being cleared with drain rods. There have been some repairs to the steps. Hedge cutters were used to trim branches around much of the reserve, and a strimmer to cut the grass around the benches.
them last year due to restrictions of the pandemic.
