Two work parties in 8 days on the Pit!

Can I just say what a massive success the work parties over the last two weekends have been.

A lot has been achieved.

With the clubs new pole saw we have been able to trim the overhead canopy’s in all swims and clear many snags close to the waterline. A large proportion of the cut brush has been burnt, but some has been stacked for burning in the near future.

In the woods we had some trees in a very serious condition that we had picked up on on our last tree survey. These were dealt with and logged up.

Plenty of tea and cake stops were had and we all stopped and came together at 11:00 on the 11th to remember the fallen.

I would also all like to welcome on board our two new bailiffs, Phoebe Stuart and Sam Tittensor who have both just turned 18 and showing great potential. Phoebe has been coming to work party’s that I have run for the last six years that I can remember, and Sam is an up and coming tree surgeon. Welcome to the Team guys. 

Thanks goes to the non-member who always turns up and gives his support to us like he did on our old water and to new members who have only just joined and gave two days to help us and then we have the other members who regularly help out and of course your normal bailiffs that always turn up.

With Phoebe now a bailiff she has also given up her time with her photography and media business she runs and photographed the progress we have made and the fun we have had.

These pictures belong to her so if you download any please send her a thank you message. More photos are on the Totham Pit Facebook group and it’s worth spending some time to have a look through them just to see the amount of work that goes into these work parties.

We have a 5 year plan on the pit; this is going very well and we are up to speed with that side of things. We had a great turn out and we have plans for further work parties going forward. Please come along; I’m sure you will find it fun, everyone is welcome and no one is expected to work beyond their abilities. Your help frees the bailiffs up to sort other things they would like to get done, so please pop along.

At this point I’m going to say good evening due to my back and other parts of my body hurting like mad, and I’m going to have a bath.

Many thanks again to the new and old…

Deano.

The Totham Pit Bailiff Team…….
