Endeavour's endeavours

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

Six today.

Made a quick call to Guildford BC and it was decided to continue the good work made by A between the pub and rowing club at Shalford. JP, one of the team, would be down to check our progress mid-morning.

We spent the first part of the morning clearing litter and tackling the three larger trees that had been marked with tape by the previous group, with only two large hawthorns remaining. JP arrived as we were stacking material on the previous pile to be collected/left to rot down. He suggested we leave that particular area and concentrate on the area a smidgen upstream (from the footbridge to the first large tree before the rowing club), cutting back everything that is blocking the view to the river/growing out of the wall, along the short footpath. All the materials from this stint was cut into manageable pieces and stored on the boat. Once the boat was full (extremely) we set off upstream and disposed of the rubbish near the point where the backwater joins the main river and continued to St Cats for a late lunch. There is more work on this section.

An enjoyable day and it appears there is plenty of work to look forward to 😊
