No news is good news so they say!

it's been awhile since this page was updated, due being busy with other things.

Despite the lockdown earlier in the year, it's been an interesting year so far, with early problems getting permits printed, and ongoing permit availability, we have managed to keep up with demand for this years permits.

We are entering what should be work party season, but the current covid rule of 6 and further restrictions on the horizon, it could be awhile before we are able to do any meaningful work parties,  but keep an eye on our Facebook page as any workparites will be announced on there.
