Not many like leaving a job half done

Flanders Moss, NNR

Another Wednesday out with the volunteers has been and gone and it was no surprise the weather didn’t disappoint us!  Over the last months the volunteers have battled through the elements and everything Mother Nature has thrown at them and it hasn’t been pleasant.

This time their task was to extend 5 plastic dams since the water was going around the current dams in place.

It was tricky as the surrounding area that they needed to get to was really deep in some places.  It was a great upper body work out and our shoulders were on fire as we needed to cut the 4 metre plastic sheets into 1.5 metre pieces and then hammer them in place.

Even though the volunteers worked extremely hard not all 5 dams were finished, so next Wednesday they are already fired up to get back out there to finish this job! Not one of them likes to see a job half done and walk away. We couldn’t ask for a better bunch of volunteers and can’t highly praise them enough for all their efforts.
