On 30th August we did some brush-cutter work on the Tee Lake meadow. This is to enable contractors to clear the brambles encroaching on the meadow.
Another task for 30th August was the making safe of the trench we'd dug to hinder the spread of the poplars by Tee Lake. Here it is before ...

Great work everyone!
Another team did some path clearing in the same area.
On 9th August the Friends did some ragwort and dock control on three meadows.
Anyone seen Keith?!
It can be back-breaking work! Another team tackled Himalayan Balsam in Beanhill Wood. Good work everyone.

Other members of the group cleared the views from the Tee Lake benches...
Here's Paul retrieving litter from the lake.
A third team did path clearing by Shawbirch Bridge.
