Next WPPrevious WP ACWA Working Party

On 29-Apr-2015 a small WP improved the path between Ryton and Wolston near the sewage works, mainly a task of more drastic trimming of the hedge beside & above the path.

Then on 19-May-2015 a WP of * people improved the path from Fryth Close to Kenilworth Golf course.  With this task we did even more drastic trimming of the undergrowth and  dug away the sides of the path to widen the width in places from a fraction of a metre to a full 2 metres, and improved draining and surface just using materials found on site.

April & May Achievements

Bob C tells me that not only is the April path cleared for width, but also for height so I can take better photos at Challenge 2016! 

Both WP made excellent use of the new Battery Powered Hedge Trimmer.

19-May was sunny but wintry morning, with cloud increasing & rain forecast for Noon.  Good planning got All tasks completed by before Noon.  Four of us got to the Cottage in Kenilworth and enjoyed a good lunch, and the rain came and went while in the pub. 

Plans

The next WP is due on on Wednesday 17th June 2015 - see below for details.  We have also discussed a proposal to do improvements on the path in the NW corner of Circular Walk 20, and hope details can be fixed in time for 17-Jul.

Task(s):

Cut the overgrown hedge so that path between the hedge and fence is usable.  Trim with hedge cutter to get a narrow path, then loppers to make it wider, then sawing so it can for some years just be kept usable with regular use of ACWA battery powered hedge trimmer.  Clear away cuttings as needed.
