Aside from the A.G.M . I would like to thanks the members that attended the last work party at Alderson,

Duncan, Carl, John, Keith, Ken, Chuddy, Peter, Justin and myself attended to concreting ducts under the gates and attaching insulators to prepare for electrification of the otter fence.

Thanks also to those that have helped with the otter fence outside of work parties recently- Chuddy, Keith, Miles, John, Peter, Andy, Bart and Keith. The Project is now nearing completion.

The recent work parties at Alderson have been really enjoyable occasions and a great deal has been achieved.

I am planning a final work party at Alderson to replace the steps in pegs 6-10 and possibly electrify the otter fence on Sat 25th April 8am to 1pm all volunteers will be welcome
