Missing or poor-condition posts replaced today at Brabyns Park, Reddish Vale and Wythenshawe Park. The picture shows the new post P at Wythenshawe.
Fence with a plaque on restored to the vertical at Urmston Meadows; plaque replaced on bridge at Reddish Vale; full tour of Dove Stone. All in a days work – and now there are no issues that we know about in any parks, other than quite a bit of painting would be good.
Picture is Dove Stone post Y, which had been reported as very hard to find – quite possibly because the circle was nowhere near the right place.
A set of keys has been found at Dove Stone – near a place unlikely to be visited unless you were orienteering (control CC). Looks like house keys and a make of car. Contact us if they could be yours.
Last week, the frozen conditions prevented digging in replacement posts … so we went on a tour of post checks and gardening – Kersal Moor, Philips Park Prestwich, Clifton, Blackleach and Sale Water Park.
Photo is a boat-shaped thingy at Clifton Country Park.
A couple of days of maintenance activity his week:
Checks of Chadderton Hall Park, and Strinesdale. New S/F plaques at the S1 and S2 starts at Daisy Nook. Rotted plaque D replaced at Gorse Hall.
Missing plaque O replaced at Burrs Country Park. Rotten post Z replaced and missing plaque D put in at Hoyles Park. Missing post A replaced at Queens Park Heywood. Missing post R replaced at Moss Bank.
Photo is the bridge at Queens Park Heywood, from near post A.
Picture is Dave McCann digging a very fine hole at Kersal Dale – now restored to completeness. Also, Prince’s Park, Irlam fixed and improved, and missing post J restored (as a plaque) at Daisy Nook.
