Regular working bees are happening again on the Barham Redgum Board walk.
All the boardwalk builders are volunteers, who are focussed on getting the project finished.
Recent progress has included re-planking the walkway out onto the river and extending the bearers up to the edge of the Roads and Maritime Services bridgework barriers.
The next stage will be placing red gum joists on the bearers, followed finally by the top decking and landscaping.
As well as developing the under bridge walk way, linking the two Barham Riverside Parks, the Roads and Maritime Services have also offered to provide large section timber seating at various points along the boardwalk, on its completion.
The organisers- Barham Consolidated Inc. Boardwalk Committee – would welcome anyone who wants to support this project and lend a hand.
“You don’t need to bring tools. We have all that on site. All you need is some enthusiasm and some energy! And there are lots of ways of helping. Rhonda Rathje often brings us a picnic lunch to share which we all love. The generosity of locals and the local timber industry just blows you away. It’s a very satisfying project to be part of” says Marty Cincotta.
Anthony Jackson usually reminds people via text during the week if there is a working bee on the Sunday. The working bees usually start at 10am and finish about 2pm.
If you are interested in helping in any way or have questions, feel free to call Anthony (0427533097) or Marty (0418509759). Your support will be valued.
