It started dry but gradually got wetter but that didn’t prevent more good clearance work to remove shade on the lake edge at the Springwell Lane end of the reserve, including a nice bit of dead hedging. Jack and Ray also piled logs to ensure that people use the gate rather than going round the side at the footpath entrance. The mince pies went down well – home made by John May’s independent grocery shop in Chorleywood.
 
Munching and working were: Emma Brading, Phillip and Julia Davies, Peter Ewer, Ray Kristofiak, Mike Lansdowne, Tony and Sheila Lee, Alison Marriott, Bob Sherrin (Thanks for the chocolate biscuits which we’ll have at the next work party), Ian Watson and Jack Westbrook.
