Pencil Brook Culvert newsletter update January 19

Environment Agency update:

In the newsletter they did say that the additional liner in the school area would be completed in that week commencing 17th December.

Unfortunately they had a problem in trying to get the 5 tonne liner down the school access road and were unable to complete the work.

They had hoped that the pipework for the over pumping operation could have been removed prior to the Xmas break, but it has had to be left in place.

Their contractor returns next week and we would hope to complete the work shortly after that.

Countryside Volunteer Rangers Crompton Moor – Sunday 30 December

Last one of the year, another volunteering Sunday to help you lose those Christmas calories (!), so I hope you can join me in completing the drainage maintenance on the access road, as the maintenance carried out so far is working a treat.

The weather forecast for Sunday is light cloud and a gentle breeze, likely temperature of 9º/10º and 7 mph winds so ensure you have your favourite hot & or cold liquids, warm clothing, appropriate footwear and a packed lunch if you are up for the day – it may feel colder than it really is i.e. 8º.

If you have any issues that you may wish to discuss prior to Sunday, please do not hesitate to email (on either address) or text / phone me on 07961107860.

For those of you that have not already done so, please could you let me know if you intend to join us on the day.

I look forward to seeing you in the Crompton Moor Car Park from 10.30 onwards on Sunday. Thank you.
