25th October 2008
Rebuilding the Gledhow Lake Jetty

On Saturday 25th October 2008, around 40 volunteers turned up to spend the day rebuilding the jetty on the northern side of Gledhow Lake.

It was a huge job and work carried on from before 9am to after 4pm, with a break for a much needed barbecue lunch (many thanks to Ian & Linda for this!).

Altogether 6 wire gabions were installed at the edge of the lake, and filled with 20 tonnes of stone. A gently sloping path was also dug out, leading down to the jetty and surfaced in many more tonnes of finer stone hardcore. Finally, wooden fencing was added along the jetty edges to finish the project.

Everyone was very pleased with the result, and the Friends would like to thank all those volunteers who helped make it possible.

Below are some photos from the day, and more details of the project and the award it won can be found on the 04-02-2010 Community & City Pride Awards Ceremony page.
