The security fencing on the northern boundary of TPM is nearly complete. We needed to do this after several incidents of people coming through from Tumbling Bay, and after several years of patching and watching for holes appear in the old fencing.

Jude and Gus have done some sterling work coordinating volunteers erecting the new fencing over many months.  We had hoped to be finished by now but flooding has set us back a little.  In addition, we are planting a mixed hawthorn and small-tree hedge in front of the fence to soften the look and improve security.

We couldn’t have done this without the generous financial support from Councillors Colin Cook and Susanna Pressel – both of whom provided funds from their Ward Member budgets to support us in safeguarding the integrity of the site.

Many thanks to Gus and Jude for leading on this and to all those volunteers who gave their time and energy to assist, and also to the Oxfordshire Community Payback Team who helped us.
