West Vale mid-week work-party

6th August, 2013

This week we hosted two teams of volunteers from companies in Swindon - Nationwide Building Society and the Wyvern Theatre. Fortunately we have plenty of jobs to do so there was no rivalry. 

Two Nationwide teams worked on improving the towpath between Stainwick Lane and Station Road, Shrivenham, and a crew from the Wyvern, in t-shirts advertising their Jack & the Beanstalk panto, continued to create a new section of towpath to the west of Station Road, with their second team clearing the site of a proposed new culvert. The weather was unusually kind, dry and not too hot and everyone appeared to enjoy a day out of the office doing manual labour in our tranquil location, although some were a little concerned by the abundance of insect life!
