Following on from the previous improvements undertaken at Little Rowfant lakes, your Committee have scheduled the next phase of works to commence Saturday 22nd September and run for approximately 9 days ending Sunday 30th September . These works will see the channel which runs alongside the length of the car park at Little Rowfant excavated down to a line from peg 1 across to peg 23, including tree removal, bank construction & clearance of silt. The works will be undertaken with the use of heavy plant & machinery operating. This will see a requirement to close the lakes on selected days, as the car park would be too dangerous to (a) leave cars parked due to plant & machinery movements, & (b) for members to be on foot in the area. A notice will be posted on the car park gate each day with full details of any closure(s), with an element of flexibility being required dependent upon the daily progress of the works. Whilst the closure of the water is not ideal, your Committee have taken the decision to allow the lakes to be closed for health & safety reasons, & to allow the works to be completed in the shortest timeframe.
Additionally, the competition scheduled for Sunday 23rd September has been cancelled in view of the planned works.
