Endeavour's endeavours

Regular updates on the environmental work carried out by our volunteer Swingbridge Endeavour crews.

A very small group today. Fortunately, K is a landscape gardener by trade and also a bit of a human dynamo, so he was able to do the work of about three ‘normal’ participants.

A pleasant motor upstream to the mooring at the Railway Bridge to continue work on the Shalford Steps.

We did a good deed on the way by retrieving a tennis ball from the river for a lady exercising her reluctant-swimmer dog by the Jumping Bridge.

At the work-site, the heavy rain of the previous few days had made the ground a little more forgiving to dig, though there’s still an awful lot or rubble / rubbish mixed in to the soil.  We installed two more lengths of the 8’ siding planks and two more steps.

We received many positive comments and “thanks-you’s” from dog walkers passing by.

We had a brief rain interruption during the morning, then fortunately were back on the boat having a late lunch when the real monsoon arrived! The rain largely backed for return journey.

A productive day considering the small team we had.
