Friday 4th Sept: Reevy Mill Dam, Reevy Road, Wibsey
The day was spent cutting the grass and nettle areas and continuing to clear the path. We also had to remove some damaged tree branches.
Eleven volunteers worked today with a mixture of traditional hand tools - the scythes, sickles and hay rakes - and the auto-scythe with allows efficient cutting at the base of the vegetation.
We normally take our boat to the dam at this time of year to collect litter in the reeds, however today we focused on the waters edge and grassland. Several passers-by commented on the reduction for litter for the site.We appreciate the support of the Clean Team who collected the bulky waste.
