‘A thing of beauty’: new fencing along the Glen

Back in February, FOGG volunteers wrote to the council asking if a broken down fence at the top of Glen Goyle could be fixed; they wrote again in July with a gentle reminder:

“As it will become a viewing area for the developing  Fernery it is vital from a safety viewpoint that it is sorted soon. Many more people now walk through the area and appreciate the restoration and development that is taking place, including your previous fencing and bridge renovations.”

And so, last week, the broken and rotten handrail and fence at the north end was repaired!

As reported by District Council horticultural officer Paul Fealey:

“We can thank FOGG members for their emails to the area officer, and the maintenance technician, who did such a good job with the repair. I would be happy to pass on any comments about his work to him. He really cares about doing a job well.”

So, do pass on any comment to the EDDC about this fine piece of work:

As one comment would have it: ‘a thing of beauty’.

A big thanks, then, to the District Council – and to their maintenance technician for such a good job.
