Tower Hide Maintenance

Sunday, May 31st 2020

Staff from Gilleard Brothers Ltd (Specialists in the design, manufacture and erection of bird hides) have been working on repairing the main tower hide at the lake. This familiar structure, the first hide to be built at Foxglove, was constructed by the same firm and was in need of some TLC! They certainly picked a good week in terms of the weather.

The repair project was originally scheduled for the start of April however, the lockdown meant that the materials were difficult to source and it had to be delayed.

By the end of the working week, some of the top steps were already in place. It is hoped that the job will be completed over the next few days.
