Restoration Training Day

On Saturday the 23rd November a training day was held at Fornham All Saints Village Hall for fifteen volunteers from up and down the Lark. In the morning presentations by Rob Macgovern from the Wild Trout Trust, Glenn Smithson and Andrew Hinchley from RLCP instructed on river restoration techniques.

We had a fabulous lunch at the Three Kings followed by an In River Training Session. The group learnt how to build a revetment upstream of Duck Sluice to prevent the path subsiding, along with the correct way to add deflectors in the river to improve the flow and increase turbulence.

Fun was had by all and only one person (yours truly) took a swim!
