The first offside cut of the year was made by an 8 strong Thursday crew. The focus was on improving the 'line of sight' opposite the Stophouse. CRT kindly allowed BCS the use of Tug 'Pochard', with flat attached, to work from. The arisings were transported to the water point next to Midland Chandlers and stacked ready for chipping. The chipper has been arranged for early in the new year which should give BCS time to complete all cutting that will require chipping this winter.
