Getting to the island
Colin Gray writes:
In late August, four very hard working volunteers from Dimension Data, led by Julie, were helping us remove a large invasion of weeds from Clearwater Island to expose the gravel for next year’s gulls and terns to nest on. A vast amount of weed was removed and is now in two huge piles to be burned at a later date when dry.
We were impressed at the amount of work they achieved in just 3.5 hours; in fact we had trouble persuading them to stop work and leave the island when Rachel and the LSW volunteers had commitments elsewhere in the afternoon. I think it was only the threat to leave them there without a boat and come back around 5 p.m. that decided them to leave!
The Dimension Data team taking a well-earned break
Ed. Dimension Data is a Corporate Member of Fleet Pond Society (FPS) and volunteers have helped out at the Pond over a number of years which has been greatly appreciated.
