This morning the contractors from Clive Hurt began setting out the channel markers on the berm and the heavy plant which includes 4 long arm diggers and 2 tracked dumper trucks have been unloaded ready to commence the removal of the soil. This will create a channel 26 metres wide and 3 metres deep between the road and the island and will be navigable for most of the season when the water level is back to normal. The work is estimated to last 3-4 weeks so you should be able to see how the work is progressing when you come up to the AGM.

Also the United Utilities Forestry team have taken down the old fence and started the replacement by putting in the new posts and a gate with the rails to be fitted in the next couple of weeks.

See you all at the AGM on the 21st February
