A beautiful day for us and, surprisingly, there wasn't much work needed this time - mostly road maintence. A team of enthusiastic labourers aged from 5-y-o to 65-y-o, shovelled into a trailer, gravel that had been washed from the road into the gutter. This was also time to drag out our custom made "spikey pole thing", which lives on the roof of Maryann's shed, and clear the gravel and roots out from he culvert under Downderry's drive.
Next, we carted it all down to the turning circle where the gravel was a bit light-on. There an even bigger team emptied the trailer and spread the gravel around. Looks pretty good!
Whilst it was mainly road maintenance, Carole and Chris got stuck into some serious pruning of undergrowth outside The Spinney whilst Allan and Peter had another crack at tidying up the stumps in the Edna Walling Lane triangle. End result - looks good too!
We all finished off at The Barn for morning tea and a chat in the sun - what a great morning
(We didn't get a chance to take to photos at the time so they were taken a few days later after some rain.)
