May work party

Dear all

Apologies for the last minute message. I've had a few problems which mean that I've not been able to send a message before now, but this email is to confirm that there is a work party tomorrow, 10th May between 10am and 3pm.

As last month we will be meeting at Alton, meeting on Farley Lane near to Alton station from 9:45am. For those using satnav, put in ST10 4BY. The work site is a short walk from this spot. There is parking off-road down a slope parallel to the former railway line, opposite the station.

The task will be a continuation of last month's very successful event, clearing the towpath of low-lying vegetation in the Crumpwood direction. All tools and equipment will be provided. Volunteers are advised to wear old clothes, stout shoes and to bring waterproofs in case of rain and a packed lunch if staying all day. Given the very last minute message, there is no need to let me know if you will be coming; I will ensure that there is sufficient equipment for everyone.

I will send out a "proper" update in the next week or two, with an update on recent work parties and also the milepost project.

Best regards
Steve
