Thanks to the efforts of two valiant volunteers, the crumbling old boardwalk, the pathway that leads into the meadow, has been restored to its former glory. All done within a day. We thank one of our neighbours for donating some unwanted decking, which has been repurposed successfully as you can see in the picture. A great job done.

CREOS is holding a tree-planting session on Sunday 4th December. Do join us if you can.
We are aware that many of our members would be willing to help out occasionally with easy jobs like tree and bulb planting, or path sweeping, but are unable to come to our workdays on the third Sunday of the month. If you are someone who is available to help out occasionally on a weekday or perhaps a weekend and would be willing to be on our new Volunteers List do please let us know.
We are pleased to report that the water leak by the Hanley path has now at long last been fixed.
