There are several things for me to say early in the new year.
Firstly, our next workday will be on Sunday 22nd January, meeting at 10:00. We will be hedge laying again, south of Coate Water. I will send another note round when I have all the details worked out.
Secondly, we now have a Facebook page. I hope this will be useful in helping to spread the word about what we’re doing: so if you are already a Facebook user, feel free to go to the page and like it. You’ll find information about the work day there and I’ll try and keep it updated. I am a complete novice at social networking myself: my thanks to Peter David for getting me going at last on this. If you notice anything you would like to see improved, please let me know.
Lastly, I am doing a bit of supplementary work on the cycle path along the Railway Cutting in Old Town, Swindon. This northerly extension of the Coate to Marlborough path is a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its geology: and the geology is getting obscured by ferns, trees and roots. I have formal permission to do a little clearing work so that the rocks can be seen again. We will start at 10:00 on Sunday 5th February and again on Saturday 25th. You are welcome to come if you would be interested: and on the day I will explain something about the geology and why it’s of interest. Details are on ther Facebook page.
