4th April 2018 'Community Woody Dam Day' 

Several members of the group and volunteers spent the day improving and building new woody dams on one of the Kneebrook watercourses in the Stretton on Fosse area. These will help attentuate (hold back) and 'slow the flow' to downstream areas. Unfortunately the weather was not good and the underfoot conditions were awful, due to one of the wettest winters on record. But we all enjoyed the day and it demonstrated what can be acheived with a qualified chainsaw operator and a few willing volunteers
