2007 - THE  L.A.M.S TEAM

The construction of the new pathway network, hedging and new fencing, was undertaken by Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council's L.A.M.S (Landscape and Access Management System) team led by John Morgan. The team were given work experience, enhancing future employment possibilities.

The society was very impressed by the team's work, which was often carried out in very poor weather conditions.
