The first work party of the season and a good turnout – 14 in all. Our job was to rake and collect the long grass cut by Rob Hopkins in the fenced area at the end of the causeway that separates Stocker’s and Bury lakes.  For some reason Rob hadn’t cut as large an area as usual, so, for the first time in living memory, we finished the work party by midday.  This was the first work party since we moved our tools from Stocker’s House garage to the fishermen’s shed nearer Springwell Lane.  We still met at Stocker’s House, but the tools had to be loaded into the van during the week before.

Biscuits were up to their usual high standard - dark chocolate-coated ginger, jammy dodgers and garibaldis!

Good work from Russell Ball, Orlando Bell, Julia Davies, Ken Davies, Milesh Dodhia, Peter Ewer, Evelyn Fox, Dawn Goodair, Marcus King, Tony and Sheila Lee, Alison Marriott and Ian Watson.
