I am sitting this morning trying to work out how to make the wetland project work,as the pipe that feeds a lower pond keeps blocking up, the first thing will try is a bigger bore pipe with a right angled bend on it and some sort of external filter or if that does not work We can try an in line filter the kind used in pond filtering equipment. Maybe this will cure the top pond habit of filling then overflowing into the grass land.
Every now and then volunteer numbers drop, this can be for all sorts of reasons, collages term ending, employment, child care the list is endless, in the past in the early days of my membership of the ConVols there have been as few as two members out with us. Its not that bad lol but we could do with a membership boost , some advice the local radio but that route can and does cause the opposite problem Too many people that can lead to volunteers standing around with nothing to do and nothing to do it with. Social media is also problematical often the people that your trying to attract are committed to other groups and are unable to give practical support. The opposite is also true, not all are internet addicts and the people that you want to see your posts never do.
