We are making an effort to keep on top of leaves on the path this year. You might think this is a bit pointless, but we're not doing it to make the place look tidier. In previous years the leaves have been left to rot down on the path, making the surface exceptionally slippy for cyclists and pedestrians, especially when the icy weather follows.
We have acquired a leaf sweeper from Barnitts, which is working wonderfully to gobble up large quantities of leaves. We also intend to salt the path this winter, again to make our route in to town safer for all.Next: Phase 2 Begins
