Winter Work at Wacker Quay


Come and join the local community group at Wacker Quay on Sunday 27th November, to tidy the site, improve access to the riverside and create better viewpoints.

The day will be spent developing the new trail that was begun last winter, along the old military railway track from Wacker Quay. The local group have cleared undergrowth from the route of the railway to help more people to enjoy this beautiful and peaceful riverside walkway.

The site, previously managed by Cornwall Council, has recently been taken on by the Tamar Community Trust, who are now managing the site under licence from the MOD. The Trust will be working hard throughout the winter, alongside the community group, helping to run a series of work days to establish a new walking route to Antony village, amongst other work.

Vice Chair of the Trust, John Page, says: “We are delighted to be involved with this super site, with its wealth of wildlife and rich history. I look forward to working with the local group in continuing to improve access around the Quay, to enable more of the community to enjoy this special place”.

All are welcome at the workday. The work begins at 11:00am and ends at 4:30pm – feel free to come along for an hour or two, or join the group for the whole day. Hot food and hot and cold drinks will be available. Please wear suitable footwear and clothing for working outdoors.
