Tidying The Weir
For the first two days of the week Ady and Callum have been tidying the area in front of the weir that can be found by the Ruskin and Sainsbury Buildings and the orchard.
Heavily infested by bindweed, overgrown shrubs and tired perennials, they were joined today by Ali, Graham and Kieron to help them with, what had proved to be, a rather large job.
The reeds in the weir bed had also become overgrown and had to be cleared, Callum donned the waders and set about dragging the drained bed.
By the end of the day, day three, the beds had been levelled and cleared. The pump, having been repaired, will be reconnected and flowing water will soon be seen again.
