Just a quick update on the installation of a bin and bench at the Northwood lake. Following my request for this to happen before the summer the Council have been in touch to confirm when works are taking place.
Unfortunately there is no path on the north side where the bench and bin could be installed. Without a path the areas around the bench would become very worn and muddy. Also there is a large number of mature trees in this area which would prevent excavation for the required pads for the bench and bin.
However there is an existing path on the east side where the bench and bin can be easily installed to serve those who wish to observe the wild fowl.
