Many hands make light work, so we’re calling for as many volunteers as we can muster to help clear the trail next Saturday!
What Will We Be Doing?
The existing Hickson Trail has been shrinking in width over the years as plants grew abundantly. Because Upper Thames Brewing Company is sponsoring a “Fun Run” (proceeds to the Hickson Trail project) on the trail on September 16 the path needs to be rewidened. Last Saturday 2 of the 6 km of the existing Hickson Trail was brushed open to about 8 feet in width by a handful of dedicated volunteers. They worked from 9 am to 6 pm and did a great job, BUT we need to keep going and we need more strong arms to join us.
When and Where?
Please meet us Saturday, August 19, at 9 am, at the Braemar Road trail entrance. Raindate on Sunday. If you have them please bring lopping sheers, pruning saws, Sawsals, hedge trimmers, weed eaters, swede saws and/or rakes. Don’t forget to bring insect repellent and gloves.
