A couple of weeks ago, inspired and led by Graham Speight, the Wintersett Team had procured and transported materials to Anglers CP so that a small tern raft could be assembled.
Today was the day to complete the first raft and assemble a second larger tern raft. Then, under the watchful eye of Bob Pipkin, Anglers Country Park Manager, float and anchor both rafts on the lake.
We met in the car park at 08.00hrs. First task was to transport all required materials and tools up to the lake, in front of the hide.

The rafts were sited and anchored safely by Graham and Chris. No one fell in, so Bob breathed a huge sigh of relief. Many thanks to him for coming in on his day off to provide the health and safety requirements on this WMDC site. We are sorry he is leaving us on Thursday, but after today, he was going out on a high. I spoke later to Pete S , who said everything had gone to plan and work was completed by 14.00hrs.
