Update by Joan Tatters

Good Afternoon,

By now you will have notice our team are currently setting out the area to commence the work for the treatment works.

Jason and his team (the same crew as Otterburn) have arranged the ecological sweep of the site, commenced the site set up and widened the existing entrance road and are currently stripping and stoning up the site. All this in preparation of the site set up and the installation of the welfare facilities. Progress has been good, due to the good weather, however adhering to the government guidance on COVID-19 has and will continue to be a challenge.

The team will continue to following the guide lines so we respectfully ask should you approach any of our team when you are conducting your daily exercise please me mindful of social distancing.

Just a couple of photos for those who haven't been able to see in person our progression.

Don't forget to ask me any questions about the project, I'd be happy to help
