Storm Damage

- posted by Rosey Pounsett

The severe storm that blew through on November 11th created quite lot of work for the small but hard working crew of volunteers that maintain the lake and its surrounds.

There were quite a number of trees that were completely blown over, and many more that lost branches, both large and small.

The small band of volunteers that attended the clean-up the following day ensured the safety of the lake users, and removed the worst of the fallen trees.

The clean-up was continuing right up to the sudden state lock-down on Wednesday 18th due to the COVID 19 scare.

Once the gate opens again on Monday morning the clean up will continue, with the volunteers splitting their energies between the clean-up and the general maintenance duties usually undertaken.

The Lake McIntyre Management Committee is grateful for the committment and enthusiasm shown by the small band of vital volunteers, and we say a huge thanks to them all.

I have added some photos of the damage and the clean-up.
