Another successful working bee, held yesterday morning, saw the completion of upgrades to the Kettering Point Walking Track.

Kettering Community Association committee member and  project organiser, Eric Baldwin, was delighted with the outcome and said:

To all the members and non-member who assisted in the final laying of gravel1 to the Kettering Point Walk a GREAT BIG VOTE OF THANKS. Again at record speed, a little over 12 tonnes of gravel transported, raked, and wacker packed in around three-and-a-half hours. Well done!
Jess2 and I walked the track last night and I think it is as good as it gets – so again thank you from us all who use it.

KCA Treasurer, Sue Hoyle, was on hand to record proceedings but only had her mobile phone handy so apologises for the quality of the photos below (click thumbnails to enlarge).

Looking at the first three shots you could get the idea that the event just involved a lot of standing around eating and drinking. But the next two prove that there was much hard labour involved before the volunteers were able to enjoy some well-deserved refreshments.

Just visit the track to see what a great job Eric and his helpers have done.
