Well done to the T.A.G. trail workers. When 10am dawned on Saturday morning and there were only 5 people at the meet point I must say I was worried that we had lost your enthusiasm. But lo and behold within 10 minutes another fifteen people had appeared and the final turnout for the day was a record twenty two people and a few assorted children of various sizes.
The weather was generous and stayed dry for the day, although woolly underwear was a good idea as it was a bit nippy in the woods. The team split into two work parties and set off for a day of tidying up in the area of Bunker Buster where winter rain had created some erosion problems.
Everyone pitched in and the path culverts were cleared out including some incredibly smelly bits (well Stan swore it was the drains). One trail that had got very muddy was re-routed to more stable ground and the old route closed off.
The tea break was greatly improved by the cake donations from Jo and others.
Where the route crossed ground that was inherently very wet, some low level boardwalk was installed to stop any further erosion while protecting the drainage.
We finished off at lunchtime with a visit to the Tweseldown pub to refresh adults and children alike.
A big thank you to everyone who came along including…
The ‘A’ team – Bob, Dave and Lee (great skills guys)
Dave B, Ned & Lucia, Stan L, Wheezy Steve , Lesley, Jo F and family, Pants and small
Pants, John, Bazz , Irish Rich and Family and dog, Ewan, Jo M (hope your shoes dried out)

Well done all!
