We had an early start and what a magnificent morning greeted us as we made our way across the water meadows.
Our task for the day was to remove the fence above 10-Hatches, ready for the contractors in March to come in and erect a spanking new fence, allowing fishermen plenty of room to fish this wonderful stretch.
It wasn’t long be the gang were hard at work, some removing the wire staples, some pulling up the posts and the rest rolling the barbed wire.
After an hours hard work everyone welcomed a break and a hot cup of Nick’s tea.
With so many helpers the fence was down after 3 hours hard work and now it was time for one of John’s special curries.
Today we got agreement from the farmer to replace the fence above 10-Hatches. The new fence will provide easier access to this lovely stretch.. Thanks to Richard & John for their help..
Saturday 16th February – Removal of fence @ 10-Hatches – curry lunch provided
