Road No 3,  fencing, cutting, burning, 
gate, poles and new  dustbins and other things.

One man's rubbish is another man's treasure!

Elizabeth and Shepherd took all the
 broken paving from the entrance to Road No 3 
and laid them neatly by the pond


Back at the entrance to Rd No 3

Elizabeth and Shepherd dug over a small bed between 
the palisade and the new paving and planted wild iris


Poles in transit for Road No 3 entrance

The corner next to the paving is now fenced, 
We used existing poles but needed to buy more.


Tidied up the existing garden  on the 
other side of the road and  put poles around it

Close to top dam

Tracy used her chainsaw to cut all the
 long fronds of the palm tree
-- as it was  being used as a toilet

and tidied up other trees

The next day  a helper and I burnt all the fronds

And four hours later all that was left.was ash
 which was put into a hole - all gone and tidy.

We then moved to below the Enviro Center where  we piled 
all the dry bamboo onto the rocks and burnt that as well


At the Environmental Center area....

BCA sponsored the new swing gate we made
 to replace the chain.
 and we made a gap in the fence for the cyclists

We put in five poles to stop cars 
driving up onto the grass
CAP has a key to the boom


Dustbins- financed by BCA and 
work by Delta Park Users Group

Peter went and collected the eight drums.

The first four completed ready to be installed

Ready for use --
 Thank you BCA  for financing them and 
   Peter for organizing the making of the frames


At the Enviro parking area:
Geoff asked if we could put a row of poles  below the container
 to stop people parking on the bank

He also asked it we could put a row of poles from the curve in the 
 road to the centre across to the inside of Leighton Drive. 
We have put a chain across until the gate is made.

 And that is all for 2015!

January 2016 

 We started the year with a couple of repairs

The concrete edging at Road No 3 had crumbled away
