Community-minded residents and councillors in Sandown took part in a two-day clear up around the canoe lake at the weekend.
Two busy days
On Saturday and Sunday last weekend, Emma Jupe (Admin of the Sandown Canoe Lake – Save Our Fish Facebook Page) was joined by Alan Jones, Adrian Whittaker (Lake councillor), along with Jeanne Jones, Ian Fletcher, and Councillors Ian Ward and Paul Brading. They cleared brambles and other foliage and three vans worth of brambles were transported to the tip by Stephen J Parkes, who was also present each day.
Jupes: Proud to be a part of this project
Emma told News OnTheWight,
“I am very proud to be a part of this project. I have worked throughout this alongside the council and professionals regarding the lake maintenance and conservation.
“We have followed all the safety guidelines to make sure that wildlife are not disturbed and I can confirm that this event was very well organised.”
Thanks were express to Dan Martin who took along his power tools and also contributed to the bramble clearance.
