2016 – May Missive

Not much news to share this month.

We made a small contribution to the SaveStGiles petition to the House of Lords regarding routing and depth of HS2 and hope to have the opportunity later in the month to put concerns regarding a risk of damage to flow to the HS2 team. A copy of a paper on this subject is now posted on the website on the “MRA in Consultation” page.

Three groups achieved their goals at Misbourne Farm, St Giles and St Peter during our last work day on 2nd April and all reported favourably on the overall cleanliness and flow in the river.

Subject to responses to the next paragraph, our next scheduled day is next Saturday 7th May and, given the date today, we had best consider this note to be “1st and 2nd bells”. It seems as if the weather may be good. Happy to go with a majority view as to whether we work morning or afternoon so, if replying, please state preference – also your wader size if any chance I don’t already have it. As usual, I will email details on Friday to those who have signed up.

As suggested by some, we have also been thinking about a weekday work party for a change but finding a date has been awkward. However, if more of you come back with a preference for Monday 16th or Monday 23rd over Saturday 7th, we seem to have an opportunity to try it this month. We certainly won’t be ding all of them, so please say your piece.

That’s all folk

Looking forward to seeing you by or in the river soon
