On 5th March a valiant team of about a dozen volunteers from the Kentish Stour Countryside Partnership (KSCP) spent a whole day in pouring rain (33mm fell on us!) clearing away much of the superficial debris from the boardwalk fire of 14th February. This was primarily sheets of melted plastic from the posts and planks, which were all made of recycled plastic, plus hundreds of bolts that held the whole structure together. In atrocious conditions the material was lugged across the marshy areas in sacks and then transported across firmer ground in wheelbarrows, to be dumped in a skip at the Whitehall Road entrance. By smashing the sheets into smaller pieces with a sledgehammer it was just about possible to fit it all in. We are enormously grateful to KSCP for putting in so much hard work on such a cold, wet day.
