Working Parties

The Trust have working parties every Wednesday throughout the year starting around 9.00 a.m. We also meet on the second Saturday of every month.

We are currently working at Pipps Ford. Work at Baylham is now complete but we return from time to time for general maintenance work like clearing up fallen trees etc.

Pipps FordHere’s a link to a web page showing the current river levels at Creeting.

We have resumed work at Pipps Ford after finishing the repairs to the accommodation bridge over the lock tail. We have also completed the new bridge base and abutments over the proposed by-wash and weir. A new timber bridge has been transported to the site and erected. We have further work planned and this will start when we have all the required permissions to hand.

There are maps below showing the location of the two sites. Note that at Pipps Ford you must park near the house and walk down to the work site but there is plenty of car parking space at Baylham.
A Working PartyIf you would like to join us, just turn up on the day or phone Martin Bird on 01394 380765 for more details. You don’t need any special skills, just a willingness to help. We will supply you with safety gear like gloves, goggles and a hard hat but you’ll have to bring your own steel tipped wellies! There are, of course, numerous tea breaks and you can even check the weather forecast before you turn up!
