It was our regular Wednesday working party today and seven Footpath Group members cleared all the paths in Jubilee Wood and did further work clearing the vast amount of Himalayan Balsam in the wood.
Gates at each end of Potlocks Path cleared and Himalayan Balsam on the canal bank just before the railway bridge on Crow Park way cleared.
