Town Trail - Clearing up by the Skatepark

 We had another successful morning on Monday, despite the rain showers. The Town Council had asked us to do some work on the Town Trail near the skate park to tidy up the area and let in more light.

We recognised that this was not a good area to create a 'dead hedge' and were delighted to be joined by some of the Balfour Beatty team with their chipper. All the brash was chipped and spread, and we also removed 5 bags of litter.

Under one of the trees it looked like someone had started a composting area. We've cleared this and ask people not to do that as we want to encourage the return of wild flowers.

The first of our photos

shows a 'before' shot, and the rest are during the work and afterwards.

We'll be taking a break now till after Christmas. Then we'll be back to continue work on the stretch of the Trail between Bye Street and Woodleigh Road.
