Newick Rootz


29th July 2021

As announced on our home page, we have restarted activities. We held a Workday on Tuesday 27th July to clear the whole length of Footpath 3. This is the one that goes along the back of the football/cricket pitches between Church Road and the rugby pitch, and then continues to Allington Road.

Newick Rootz were busy again on this date. Our 16 volunteers divided into 3 teams to do the following jobs:

  1. We mended the wooden bench by the Rugby pitch, which had sunk into the ground at one end. We jacked it up and inserted more material to stabilise and raise it.
  2. We tidied up the area around the pond by the skateboard ramp and removed some rubbish. One intrepid volunteer even donned waders and went into the pond, which is quite deep after all the wet weather this winter!
  3. We laid a wooden path down into the woods behind Newick school, using material from an old bridge that had to be demolished. It's incredibly muddy down there at the moment, but this should make it a little easier to get down and over the bridge into the woods.

The weather was kind to us and a good time was had by all.
