With a big thank you to Jamie and Ryan the swims and pathway around Little Parks have now been trimmed up as they were getting quite overgrown.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before and after the trim up.

Some more good news is that the gravel hump on the access track where the landowner has laid an irrigation pipe has now been smoothed off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and the leaking dam wall on Little Park Top Lake has been relined with clay and the whole area tidied up
