Heard you mention it on Keiths programe this morning. Very typical of a company who call themselves the Environment Agency. The very same people who turn a blind eye to pumping raw sewage into the tidal Thames. No surprise tbh Jim. Rolling Eyes

True, but they appear too one-eyed for that.

Are we sure it was the EA? I know for certain that it wasn't the lock keeping staff.

nice one fella, looks like the games afoot, who and why me wonders are what we need to discover, its good it wasnt the lock keepers, as the job is very unproffesional, and in the long term will increase the greenery due to the branches/twigs being cut in the wrong place, perhaps we can liase with the lock keepers about removing/burning the cut down branches/twigs, so there is no fuel for the fires of the fish and fry brigades

its taken a while but we've managed to track down who chainsaw charlie was, apparently it was a group of youths doing some community work on the foreshore, obviously there attending supervisor had no horticultural training,
am going to see if we will be allowed to re-prune the branches correctly, and, or, burn or remove the cut branches so as to deny the fish frying fraternity from fire fuel
thats six f's

happy days folks, we have arranged a tidy teddington lock island day, this will include pruning, litter collection and a special dispensation to burn all prunings[ no fuel for fish fryers]

I suggest we meet at the lock office at 10.00 and go from there. Aside from Jim and I, who else is up for it? How 'bout you Alex?

I've just noticed that neither Jim nor I stated in our posts the actual date of the working party! It's Monday 1st March. I don't know what Jim's excuse is; mine's that I'm exhausted from catching up with all my hate mail - or should that be postings?

I'll come along and help. Shall I bring some hefty bin bags and rubber gloves? Can't bring any tools unfortunately - don't have a garden!

nice one ken, if you come richmond way, take petersham rd towards kingston, at cross roads with traffic lights turn right into dukes ave, follow your nose until the road bends right, on left you will see blue signs pointing to lock, there is also a track with gate across, all are easily visible from road, park in road and follow blue signs/track, and bob your blinkers, better bring a rod mate, we'll see if those monster perch wanna oblige
no need to bring any tools phil, or bin bags etc, everything will be supplied by the vey nice lock staff
chaps this is our very first joint activity with any other organisation on the thames, and personally I couldn't be more pleased

Providing bin bags, heavy duty gloves, and the usual gardening tools is not a problem for the lock. However it would be helpful if anyone planning to attend could bring along their own long handled loppers/pruners and/or bow saw. You can never have too many!

chaps, the blackberries have suffered, some in particular are cut to the ground, not good when they spread by the shoots/stems growing long, then touching ground, and developing roots, however our endeavours hopefully will go someway to tending this collection, no doubt the school children doing there nature walk in the summer will be prevented from eating the sweet fruits by their teachers, but hey they'll be there for us
