Volunteer Group

No on-course actions planned

The upgrade to the upper car park is still continuing, the concrete edging is now all complete. If the weather allows we hope to begin to tar the strip between the existing road and the new concrete. We have to wait about 2 weeks for the concrete to cure sufficiently to allow the steel kerb bar to be attached. We will also need to line out the parking area.
