MAINTENANCE ON HEATLEY HAS NOW BEEN GOING ON SINCE NOVEMBER 21 AND IT SHOWS, A GREAT JOB HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT BY MARK MORGAN AND HIS TEAM OF VOLUNTEERS.

STARTING WITH THE REMOVAL OF DEAD TREES, FALLEN DOWN TREES AND REMOVING OFFENDING TREES AND BRANCHES, THIS PART OF THE WORK IS COMPLETE.


A NEW STONE PATHWAY HAS STARTED AND WILL CONTINUE UNTIL IT GOES AROUND THE LAKE, 20 TONS OF MOT HAVE ALREADY BEEN USED WITH ANOTHER 20 TONS ARRIVING NEXT THURSDAY AND THANKS TO THE VOLUNTEERS 19 TON HAS SO FAR BEEN MOVED USING ONLY WHEEL BARROWS, WELL DONE ALL YOU LADS.

 ACCESS TO ALL PEGS WILL BE DIRECTLY FROM THE PATHWAY AND BIVVIES IF BEING USED WILL ALSO BENEFIT FROM THE NEW PEGS. THE NEW PATH SO FAR GOES FROM PEG 1 TO PEG 12
