We had a great working party in June tidying up paths, cave & cascades. The Pool is busy in this lovely weather and we would like to thank everyone who has picked litter, and the people using the pool who tidied up after themselves.

Our next working party will be cutting back the summer growth from the paths, with a Litter pick, Clearing the Dam, Cascade & Cave and the Bridle path mud control/ edges.

There will be no official August working party but we will do a couple of litter picks and cut back any growth on the paths throughout the month.

Come along and help keep this asset to the village looking great.
