On Saturday 28th January we’ll be at Caesar’s Camp doing a variety of tasks including general trail maintenance and fitting a couple of bridges. Please come and get involved – you’ll need clothes you don’t mind getting dirty in and garden tools (including bow saws if you have one). Special request for long nails / screws if you have any!
Meeting point: The fire road gate near to the junction of the B3013 and the A287 – you’ll be able to park on the fire road (http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=482104&Y=149678&A=Y&Z=115)
A great thanks to the Brass Monkeys guys and girls for allowing us to attend and spread the word at the event, and thank you to all the riders/racers who rocked up, asked and listened and pledged support – we were truly stoked to have such support!
A big thank you to all who turned up to help at Minley, it’s humbling to see how many care and want to help out on the land which you ride on.
The main aim of the day was to help prevent any further ground erosion on two sections of trail; Banksy and Sponge BoB.
On Banksy we installed a small section of board walk over a wet/boggy area to minimise erosion over the winter and to let the ground recover.
Sponge BoB had repairs made to braking bumps/holes and has temporally been closed off to allow the ground to settle. Please respect the trail closures currently in force.
On another note, could all who ride on MoD Land look out for any gates which may have been left open on the Training Areas. If you see any that are unattended please close them as they pose a security risk to Troops training and it leaves the area open to fly tipping. If asked what you are doing, just reply with “The gates are supposed be closed at all times and have a sentry posted if left open”.
Thanks again for all your support – keep an eye on the website and facebook for the next trail maintenance day.
There was a fire on Caesars Camp today – please be vigilant over the coming weekend and call 999 if you spot a fire. If you do see anyone lighting fires please make a note of their description and call the Police.
A motorbike with 3 males on it was seen and apprehended on the 10th October at 1800hrs, the riders got away but the bike did not as the Police took it away for investigation thanks to TAG reporting. The offenders have been vandalising MoD property, firing catapults at walkers and poaching, If you see a motorbike or anything suspicious on Mod Land contact the Police immediately. Thank you for your co-operation.
On the 22nd October we’ll be other at Minley doing a variety of tasks including, general trail maintenance, fixing a couple of the bridges, and fitting some boardwalk over a wet area. Please come and get involved – you’ll need clothes you don’t mind getting dirty in and garden tools (including bow saws if you have one).
