MP-3 Grenade Chutes Cleared

We would like to thank Leighton Jenkins and Graham Keating from Jersey Fire for donating their time to help clear debris from the MP-3 Tower at Les Landes earlier this month. Each observation level has tubes for dropping grenades onto the ground below, and several had become clogged over time with wood fragments and rocks and dirt.

Clearing from the inside had become impossible, so an attempt had to be made to loosen the debris from the outside. Not easily done on a massive six-storey tower! Now that the tubes are cleared we have much better ventilation throughout, and we can proceed with plans to make it cleaner and safer for visitors during the 2015 season.
