A big thank you to the Barclays crew – for the second time!
Once again, many thanks to the volunteers who came down from Knutsford for the second time (as promised) to work on Lein Amlwch under the Barclays Bank Community Programme on 3/7/14. This time no fewer than 30 able-bodied folk came and between the Barclays volunteers and our own workforce there were 40 people working as a team. 7 remained at the Dingle in Llangefni and the other 33 went on to Llangwyllog. There had not been that many people at Llangwyllog station since the last passenger train on December 5th 1964 according to some of the locals.
This time round the main objective was to clear the line of all saplings and trees, and utilise them to strengthen the fencing. Because of the preparatory work carried out in advance by our own volunteers, nobody had any time to relax!
Under the second bridge out of Llangwyllog, Pont Tŷ Mawr (a bridge in perfect condition) the Barclays and Lein Amlwch ladies combined forces to arrange 2 tables of top quality food and drink to ensure that everyone was well and truly looked after. Once again our sincere thanks to Malcolm Hughes for taking charge of all the arrangements and as before ensuring that everything ran smoothly.
The following day, in spite of atrocious weather some of the Barclays volunteers went to Llanberis and swam in Llyn Padarn, cycled around Snowdon and walked to the summit! During that evening some of the Lein Amlwch volunteers joined them to celebrate what can only be described as 2 amazing days!
