Toby from the SE Rivers trust has been in contact asking if any of you guys are free to spend 1, maybe 2 days installing a fish easement on the Hogsmil

The task is similar to the fish pass installed last summer where it will be drilling and installing baffles, but is a maximum of 2-days, and only need 2 people.

If you are interested, please post up, its in-river work and as I said only 2 people and unlikely I can get there.

Cheers

Keith dates are 18th & 19th March if you can make it.

Location is a bit upstream near the A3 at Tolworth, let me know,  I know you have a lot on.

If there is anyone else who can spare the time to get involved, please put you hand up

Cheers

That's brilliant Patrick thanks mate

I am not sure about parking but by the look of it we go up via the Tolworth roundabout, first left coming from A3 southbound, then come back down Tolworth rise. I will confirm with Toby the meeting point though

looked on map, it will be easier for me to get a train to Berrylands just up the road, so if someone can pick me up, that will be the best way, me little old legs will be a bit nacked by the time i get there, it takes me 30mins by train

Firstly massive thanks to Keith and Patrick for giving up 2-days for this project, top lads and a great time, cheers.

Was thinking earlier that just shows how in a voluntary environment, how we can all gel together and work as a team, unlike many paid jobs where most people have their own agendas, very satisfying and we did very well.

This actual project is part of the South East Rivers Trust (SERT) overall reshaping of the entire Hogsmill, looking to increase fish passage by removing the 15 barriers and where like this, it is effectively an impassable culvert that goes under the A3.

Massive credit to them for putting the project together and getting the long term DEFRA funding to fulfil it, SERT were born out of the Wandle Trust and all the experience there, the Hogmills being the sister river, the other London chalk stream.

I would also say that I have total trust in what they do and what they are trying to achieve, Toby who project manages the Hogsmill is an accomplished angler and totally gets it. Very good news for the river, very good.

Keith has already posted some pics and here are some more. You can probably work out what's going on.

Throughout, as we have been involved before, Toby was happy for us just to crack on and work it out from his plans, and it all came together very nicely and also good that he trusts the TAC to do a good job. I am delighted we have this relationship with him, SERT and the Wandle Trust.

So day 1, all pretty much in order these pics, as you can see from a blank canvas it grows and grows. Logistics included getting the sandbagging right so we could stop the flow enough to work, drilling underwater, marking the pilots holes, and drilling bigger ones, using 'underwater glue' (that sets like rock in 20 mins) etc etc.

As each section was installed we had to move the bagging to protect it, and to work on another sections, we did it  Hogsmill volunteers, A Job Well done :-) 3927873466
