Good News!

Regular visitors to the blog will be pleased to hear that today, our Chairman Colonel Guy Deacon, has been awarded the Order of the British Empire in the Armed Forces Operational Awards List, for his work during the 18 months he was in the Congo.  On behalf of all associated with the reserve we offer him our warm congratulations.

Here below is the last picture of the lake without water in it!  As the work is now finished, the water gate will be closed tomorrow and the newly enlarged lake will start to fill up again.

Trevor and Darryl have finished putting in the bridge supports.  They will be back in a couple of weeks' time to build the walkway over the water.
