Craig McCoy of the National Trust has arranged a work day at Salt Island Bothy. See below for details of how you can join in.
The Friends of Salt Island Bothy group are planning another work party on the island on Wednesday 25th August. Depending on numbers, we plan to do a number of projects including repairing dry stone walls, deepening a pond, building a stile and collecting litter from the shore. Everyone is more than welcome to join us. We will meet outside the main gates of the yacht club in Killyleagh at 10.30. You can either get a lift in the National Trust boat or paddle out to the island yourself. The yacht club have kindly allowed us to use their jetty and have lent me a key fob. However, they have asked people not to wander around the club but to wait outside until I appear with the key.
If anyone is interested in coming along, please let Craig McCoy know so he can organise enough tools and confirm arrangements. His number is 07776462537.
