Sirena the mermaid, who has been watching over the lake since December 2018 retired from marine life in January, somewhat dishevelled and weather-weary!
MARLENS’ AGM opens its doors to the lake community on Sunday 15th March starting at 6.30pm in Clevedon Sailing Club. All welcome including volunteers, Friends, Lottery members, lake users, clubs and coaches.
January’s Winterfest raised over £700 for MARLENS, the charity behind the lake, which will be put to good use supporting major projects in March.
The lake will be drained on 29th February to enable mud clearance commencing 2nd March, before beginning to refill on 8th. This is part of an annual programme to dredge the lakebed each October and March costing £7,500 a year. If you are able to help with litter picking and/or cleaning during the week, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Six new concrete benches are being installed whilst the lake is empty, costing over £3,000, creating more seating around this amazing space.
MARLENS is recruiting! A secretary to help with meeting administration and organisation. For more details on pay and hours, contact email@example.com
Lost property is regularly picked up by MARLENS’ volunteers from around the lake and stored in the boathouse. For items left behind, contact 07867 336480.
