Padworth Work Party

The scene in the car park on my arrival, was not what I was hoping for, but after a month of showers and warm weather – it was inevitable that the grass would have grown like mad!

Never the less, when you have a willing group of volunteers and some heavy duty machines, what can be achieved in a short space of time is remarkable.

The fishery car park is now cut ready for the new season, and every swim has been cut and prepared for easy access. The pathway along the fishery has been cut and widened, making the walk from the car park to the top of the fishery much easier.

On a plus side, everyone spotted fish during the day, and there were thousands of fry under the road bridge. Hopefully the fishery stock levels are now starting to recover. Added to this, the Crayfish trapper  emptied his baskets, and the contents are much lower now than in recent seasons.

A big thank you once again to Thatcham AA for helping on the day. Without their support, this fishery could not be maintained to this level.
