Lily Pad Removal
The work to
remove the lily pads on Colver will take place on Tuesday 30th July. There will be large machinery involved in this
operation, Therefore pegs 16, 17, 18, 21, 22, and 23 plus the two disabled pegs (19 and 20) will be closed to all
until the work has been completed. Also the access at that end of Colver will also be closed until the work has
been completed and the machinery removed from site.
I have had a
message from Terry Branston that Smiggies Lake will also be closed on 30th July as the contractors are going to
remove the lily pad roots from there as well.
We apologise for
any inconvenience caused.
