Enhancement Work Party March 2008
Hack Green and Coole Pilate
Ten members (including shuttle car driver) made up the spring enhancement work party at Hack Green and Coole Pilate.
Other supplies were loaded at Nantwich wharf
Workboat leaving for Hack Green.
At Hack Green, old bollards were removed, leaving just six for a lock mooring with the idea that we would install nine rings to replace the bollards for a 48 hr mooring site
Unfortunately, the drill was not man enough for the job and we only managed three holes in six hours. The others will have to wait.

So then we went to Coole Pilate where our enhancement work parties started thirteen years ago
On Saturday, George did some engineering work in the work boat.
Paul cut some shuttering.
Brian cut some turf.
Muriel served us all with tea and sympathy.
Then painted the furniture - three picnic tables.
When the engineering, shuttering and turf cutting was complete, Dave mixed some concrete to make the bases.
On Sunday we had another tea break and welcomed Duncan Davenport, duty manager with BW.
We inspected our work and tidied up and wended our merry way back towards Hack Green.
