As usual at Abbey Fishponds, we worked under the direction of site warden, Marjorie White. The main tasks were to re-lay the woodchip footpath through the nature reserve (which had been largely washed away due to heavy rainfall since our previous path-laying session here), to cut back some overgrown vegetation around the path margins, and litter-pick. Members of separate Abbey Fishponds volunteer group were also involved in draining some of the wettest areas along the length of the path and reed cutting and raking.
A good turnout and hard work throughout the morning ensured that good progress was made on all tasks and we will likely be back to the Fishponds site in a couple of months to carry on the good work.
