Day -3- Bollington Aqueduct to Wood Lanes Br 18
We are running the Off side Veg Bash session for 2017.
And we would like you help please .
This year we will travel from Macclesfield to Marple as part of our three year rotational programme that some of you are familiar with …for those who are not…. we work a rota of Macc to Marple this year, Peak Forest next year then in 2019 we repeat the Kidsgrove to Macclesfield stretch…..then we start all over again !! Yes the Forth Road Bridge analogy is very apt !
If you can do one day or more that would be greatly appreciated ……..please see our planned work days below ……let me know which day or days you can help us .
This is tough dirty work so you need to wear old clothes , stout footwear , bring some lunch with you too, we will provide ample mugs of tea and biscuits too . This is greta fun , we will be on a CRT boat and removing off side vegetation from the boat or the bank , and of course all safety gear too.
Park at one of the locations listed below and we will then arrange for you to get a lift back to the days start point by car ...
Please reply to myself or Ashleigh Carden ………we look forward to seeing you next month .
