This was the last of the Friends of Maidenhead Waterways sessions on Widbrook Stream.

It rained consistently when we met in the morning, but, as they say, Rain did not stop the play!

This time, we crossed the road and worked on clearing the weeds on the right side. Rains stopped when we started wading

The water level was higher, but the banks were slightly different and it allowed me to wade into stream a little bit (without getting too far in).

We were a team of six and worked together and progressed quite considerably. The tea time came soon enough. We enjoyed coffee and biscuits.

Renewed energy allowed us to work till 11.30am, as we accomplished to clear a quite long stretch of the stream.

We walked back to cars and I picked up newly accumulated rubbish on the road side.

It was nice to see the stream cleared on both sides of the road. A job well done!

Great achievement Sol! Not just this week, but all year! You've made a huge difference for FoMW. You must have been absolutely drenched, but I bet you were still smiling. Well done!
