Age Concern, Darlington

Saturday, June 19th 2010

Today we had another visit by the Age Concern group from Darlington. Fifteen people came to have a guided walk around the reserve and then do some willow weaving with Kate from Plantlife. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and said that they will be coming back to show their families around.

Visit from Age Concern, Darlington

As the following pictures show, work has started on replacing the boardwalk through the scrapes area. Steve from Playscheme arrived this morning with his team and started to pull up the old boardwalk, which came up with much cracking of timbers!

Work on the boardwalk

New boardwalk frames

Here you can see the new frames which have been installed so far. As well as being wider, the new boardwalk will not need to have wire on the surface as it is being made with modern grip decking. We will keep you up to date on the progress as it happens. This does mean, however, that the main path through the scrapes is out of action for the moment, but only so we can make our reserve better and more accessible for you.
