ACWA Working Party

On 19-Mar-2006 a third Working Party progressed the project to replace all stiles on the "After Tea" walk from Stoneleigh.

At the start of 2006 the walk included a possible 12 stiles when all the field gates are locked shut (a minimum of 9 at any time).  After these first three Working Parties there are Five less stiles.

The team just completed the kissing gate on Sunday 19th March

Todays (19th March) Achievement

We have installed a kissing gate to replace "stile 10" (GR 324 728).  This means that all the k/g shared by ACW and the "After Tea" walk have been replaced.
 
Unfortunately the new supply of k/g were not delivered in time, so only one gate was completed today.  If the new supplies are received by WCC early next week, John may organise a special mid-week session to replace "stile 8" which had been planned for today.
 

Plans

The next Sunday session will now be on:
         Sunday 9th April 2006 at 10:00 am to about 1:00 pm
         Meet at SW end of Vicarage Road, Stoneleigh : GR 328 726.
Our task will be to replace the stile at the meeting point (stile 8), and the stile c.250 metres across the field (stile 9).  See 06-stiles-to-kg.pdf (c.500MB) for map and "before" photos.
 
The earlier proposed date of 18th April 2006 (Easter Sunday) is cancelled.
 
Dates for the rest of 2006 are then as follows:
  • Sunday 21st May
  • Sunday 18th June
  • Sunday 16th July
  • Sunday 20th August
  • Sunday 17th September
  • Sunday 15th October
  • Sunday 19th November

Why not volunteer to join us whenever you can?
