Queens Park Heywood update

Busy Spring day in Queens Park Heywood – 3 missing posts replaced (picture is YY), and a missing plaque. Also half-a-dozen minor map corrections. Herons and swans visible on their nests, with lots of geese for company. A very nice and varied park, now in good order.

A new recruit

Some unexpected help with post P at Daisy Nook – Oscar had a go with every tool in the box.

Also this week – painting and firming up at Mirrlees Fields, removal of duplicate U at Chorlton, replacements for R and U at Burrs Country Park (not to mention excellent coffee and cake at the cafe), replacements for P and V plus a couple of little map corrections at Daisy Nook.

Couple of lovely Spring days-worth of maintenance

Lots of jobs done at Burnage Rugby Club – though we found that the post fairy had been out and saved us some effort (thanks!). What was W is now TC;  J has moved a few metres out of brambles.

Post Q at Wythenshawe nudged out of brambles.  A very old post E nudged from behind a hedge at Sale Water Park. Post 33 at Woodbank dug in properly. Post B at Strinesdale dug in properly.

Couple of map changes at Chadderton Hall Park, also post F re-sited and post J dug in properly.

Carnage at Macclesfield Forest

A little trip out to Macclesfield Forest today – first to replace post X which has been disappeared by felling operations, and second to update the map with the current extent of said felling operations.

X has been repositioned on a wall corner about 100mNE of its old site (see photo).  It is slightly non-standard vs all the other posts in the forest as we haven’t got a set of replacement plaques yet.
