July 24th Npower Team Day
The Team successfully refurbished our original duckpond in spite of an overnight setback and a very very hot day with temperatures of around 30c in the full sun. We had waited months for the pond area to dry out completely so it could be worked on, and dry as a bone it was until the night before when the hosepipe got accidentally left on and when the team arrived it was full to the brim again ! Happily a very positive attitude, and a ten person group of bailing out buckets saved the day.
The new rigid pond was dug into position and jumbo bags of stone and soil barrowed many yards and infilled around the edge. Some of the Team also completed some very competent slabbing in front of a Goose- house. Much water and many cold drinks were consumed to keep up worker hydration.
All in all this was a super day with a long awaited improvement taking place. Many thanks to Team leader James, plus Tim, Manveer, Pardeep, Gavin, Cheryl, Vicki, Latisha, Steve and Nicola.
