Fifth Radley Community Work Day (August 2010)

A selection of photographs taken of the fourth Community Work Day, organised by the Northmoor Trust, at Thrupp Lake.
27th August 2010

 

Overnight rain meant things were a bit damp at the start, but it turned out to be a dry fine and very pleasant day to do some work by the lake.

While work continued on the shelter (above) the volunteer team concentrated on repainting the gate (below) picking blackberries and clearing brambles from the chailink fence by the BOAT at the Bullfield end, opening up hitherto hidden views of the lake.
