|Some of the volunteers (before finishing off this patch)|
A huge thank you to all who helped, coming together on just 24 hours' notice: from dog walkers, runners, parents and pupils of The Heights, ESCAPE toddler group, representatives from Caversham Trents Football Club and Mapledurham Lawn Tennis Club, as well as a Reading Borough Council officer. It was a wonderful community effort!
|All hands on deck|
On Friday, after an officer turned down the opportunity to use them, I decided to try and organise a community working party to get the job done.
Saturday's weather forecast was good, so although it was short-notice, I thought it was worth a try, never dreaming so many would come to help.

Subsequently, feedback has been great, with walkers delighted by the improvement. All in all, a morning well spent - thanks again to everyone.
