I met with Ryan and Chris at the Nature Trail to lay more of the board walk making the boggy areas accessible. We started the day with a nice hot cup of tea and jaffa cakes which warmed us up for some hard work on the trail.
Previous work on the board walk included putting in the posts and handrails, so our task today was to put in the bolts so that Chris could lay the planks down for people to walk on safely. It turned out to be a difficult task as the wood was wet and caused the drill to stick due to wood sticking to the drill bit, to overcome this issue we used a screwdriver to remove the wood that was stuck between the grooves.
After much hard work and plenty of tea we finally completed our task, I'm very happy with what we achieved and all that there is left for our volunteers to do now is to lay down the planks which will enable us to walk on it.
