The lockdown has ended, but despite being in Tier 2 of national restrictions, we can hold a LEAP working party!
This Saturday we are going to do some work in the village pond – not as much perhaps as previous years because it might be too cold to actually enter the pond, and we must be more careful. We have two new LEAP waders (welly boot sizes 9 and 11) if anyone wants to get in. We do not have any cromes though; these are the funny forks with long handles for pulling weeds out of the pond.
We need to cut back the pond surrounds, taking the cuttings up to the compost bins by the cemetery.
We have to maintain social distancing, and not share tools. Please bring your own shears, forks, scythes and wheelbarrows. I will have the three quarantined LEAP shears you can borrow, but they cannot be shared. The Covid-19 risk assessment has not changed from last time, and will be available if you want to see it.
We will meet at 10am on Saturday (5th December) in the Village Hall car park, and finish around midday. We will have a break, but because we cannot provide the usual refreshments please bring your own!
If there are too many of us to easily stay at least 2m apart then I will have to limit numbers. I think this is unlikely but might be necessary. There is no need to wear masks because we are outside. If you are feeling at all unwell then please do not come.
I am looking forward to seeing you there!
