Mercury Marsh reed clearing

Event Details

Annual outing to Mercury Marsh to collect and burn reeds.  We’ll be working at the South end of the marsh to the right of the TS Mercury memorial plinth. Picnic on the hard by the memorial. Bernie to lead the way for the day. Some of the work area has shallow standing water.

Bring pitch forks, garden forks and napalm (everything will be very wet).

Refer to venue link above for a bewildering array of parking options.

Double High Tide: 10.00 to 14.00  4.5m.  Did you know that there are spring tides every month, not just in Spring?




Monday morning and the reeds fight back. The cutter head snapped clean off the gearbox of the mowing machine with one bolt shearing off then the other breaking out of the transmission casing.
