On Saturday August 5th we are holding a series of sponsored events at Coniston Water, Cumbria, to replace a shed, that is no longer fit for purpose, at Garden-Able.
When asked why the shed needed replacing, Geoff from Garden-Able said, “It’s not fit for purpose at the moment, it’s too small. Because the project is growing in size it’s too small to cope with the demands placed upon it. We want to double the width it is at the moment. The plan is to have electricity in there, so we can put a kettle on and have a brew and have power sockets to charge tools.”
The sponsored events will comprise of volunteers and staff members, riding, running and walking around the 14 miles of Coniston waters whilst others swim in relay and canoe across the lake.
Coniston is the third largest lake in the area, is five miles long and 184 feet deep! The lake was formerly a part of Lancashire. It’s famous for the world water speed records set by Donald Campbell in Bluebird during the 1960’s and for providing the setting for the children’s classic Swallows And Amazons by Arthur Ransome.
