ACWA Working Party

On 15-Jul-2009 a Working Party installed a new kissing gate just north of ACW route, and a second new k/g on the ACW, both just East of Tantara Lodge.

The first new k/g, with work nearing completion of the repaired fence : 15-Jul-2009

July Achievements 2 (cont. from WP News 40)

The first new is k/g is located at GR 346 722.  This replaces a little used stile in poor condition amid lots of vegetation and a broken fence.  A significant improvement, even if the path is not on ACW!

The 2nd k/g in the hedge beyond the seat, WMP & sleeper bridge : 15-Jul-2009

The second new k/g located at GR 348 720 replaced two stiles, with the WMP replacing the stile West of the Sleeper Bridge, and the k/g replacing the stile to the East.  The step from one of the stiles was reinstalled as a seat.

We also strimmed most of one side of the path between the two k/g sites.  The rest will be completed on our next visit

In summary another satisfying day, with priority tasks completed, warm and sunny weather (in spite of forecast of rain).

The next sessions planned are:
