Spring has sprung

26 February, 2012 at 21:00

Compared with the icy chill of last week, today we were basking in warm sunshine … well, we weren’t basking but working up a sweat back on Tackeroo. A couple of piles of surfacing had been moved up to the end near Hugh’s Bridge so while the rock crew continued splitting and laying rocks, the rest of the team set about working our way further up the trail patching and clearing off the layer of mulch.

New volunteer Dave made a sterling job of breaking up the worn surface and mixing in new material ready for wackering at later date. Junior builders Lilly and Matt worked their magic on a couple of corners laying new material and clearing mulch. A big thanks to the two lads who walked up to lend a hand – sorry but I didn’t get your names.

It will be a few more weeks before the trail is opened but the new additions should be well worth the wait ….
