BROOM TRACK POT HOLES
A Work Party has been organised for 5.30pm on Wednesday 29th
April to fill in some of the pot holes at the bottom of the
track leading to Broom Lake and Ivel Valley Fisheries.
We would be grateful for volunteers from SDAA to help
complete the task that is being carried out in conjunction
with Ivel Valley Fisheries. Anyone attending is asked
to bring along a shovel, pick axe or similar tools to help
prepare the holes that will be filled with cold tarmac
before compacting. Volunteers should meet at the car
park at the bottom of the slope (not the Broom Lake car
park) and please text Richard Bell if you are able to

Broom Lake Maintenance Programme
Students from Shuttleworth College will be carrying out
maintenance work at Broom Lake on most Fridays from March
through into June. This work will include rebuilding
the swims and cutting back the undergrowth to create parking
areas, plus ensuring vehicles do not get scratched once the
track is reopened. Those parts of the lake being
worked on will be out of bounds to members from 08.30 to
17.00 on Fridays and these areas will be signed and cordoned
off. These areas will remain open to members for the
rest of the week, but be aware this is ‘work in progress’ so
take extra care as there will mounds of soil and other
‘debris’ present until the work is completed. The
first phase of the maintenance programme is concentrating on
pegs 26-42 on the farmer’s field side.
