Adderbury Lakes Update
Posted 22 weeks ago (10/01) by Theresa Goss
We are aware how much the village values the Lakes during these difficult times. During the summer and autumn they have been busier than usual, with families travelling from surrounding areas to visit. This meant we had to close the deer field path walk, which formed part of the one-way system, as it became too muddy and slippery to be safe.
This does mean that social distancing takes a little more effort, so please make sure you step aside and make as much space as you can when meeting other walkers.
We have decided that for the time being the Lakes will stay open for local walkers and have ensured that warning signs are in place, but the situation will be regularly reviewed as the Parish Council must follow government guidance on social distancing and the Lakes may be closed if this is no longer possible.
Working parties have currently been suspended, with only urgent maintenance issues dealt with.
A comprehensive tree survey was commissioned by the Parish Council and has been completed. The Lakes Management Group is in the process of considering the recommendations and how best to phase any work. There are no immediate health and safety issues raised in the report.
In the near future the Management group plan to erect a shed at the Lakes to store working party equipment and will do their best to minimise its impact on the environment.
