February Achievements

On 16-Feb-2011 a Working Party installed a large metal pedestrian gate and another massive sleeper bridge at GR 275 814 on Circular Walk 1 east of Pickford Green.  This was near the site where we did a similar task on 29-Sep-2010.

The finished sleeper bridge & p/g : 16-Feb-2011

The only signicant dfference fom the Sep-2010 task was the use of a pdestrian bridge instead of a k/g!  To make up for that reduction of workload, we also added a task of a new WMP near the Sep-2010 site, and improvements to the steps leaving Pickford Green Lane.  For more photos visit the MS Live SkyDrive at ACW Working Party 16-Feb-2011.

Probably a record turnout of workers, and certainly a record turnout if you include the NAAFI team, a potential new recruit as an observer and a few other supporters.  We also had a record number come for lunch afterwords, this time at the Toll Bar pub.

A very successful morning and we again achieved a good result!
