First things first, I am sorry to say we have decided not to run the Havergate Adventure this year. With the decision made not relax the restrictions on the 21st June we thought it was the best and safest idea to postpone and work at getting all our trips up and running again for next year. All is not lost though, this allows us to do some much-needed maintenance on our jetty, boat, and visitor infrastructure on the island (I am still waiting for the sunshine before starting).
I did get out to the island a couple of weeks ago and with the help of a volunteer, we set to work on scrubbing the jetty – a job that was done every week before lockdown. It was surprisingly enjoyable and satisfying scraping off all the weed! A seal kept us company and the common terns were feeding on the river which was lovely to see. It is nice to see the jetty looking less like a weedy river monster and more as it should.
