Corwen Newsletter May 2018

Much of the Dee Valley is starting to recover from the various batterings it has received since the turn of the year.

The regulars, primroses, bluebells, daffodils and new born lambs have been putting in a tentative appearance across
the valley whilst trees have steadily “greened up”. Not to be outdone by all that nature has to offer, the Project Team has been working hard and paddling around in mud slurry to build walls, lay concrete, clad the pump house, extend the north batter (again) and prepare for the arrival of the water tower. Unfortunately this effort has been laid low by the sudden and
unexpected death of the Project’s Engineer Philip (Phil) Carson over the weekend of April 21st/22nd. An appreciation of Phil’s work and contribution to the Project can be found at the end of this Newsletter.
