Wed 6th Sept 2017 - Wetland Walk, Adgestone. GG # 701.

Terry's Photographs.

Site information.

"When I nod my head…hit it!"

The great rake-off.

Much discussion on pruning an apple tree.

Overgrown..??? Not for long!

This little fella was carefully re-homed.

The lumberjacks hard at work.

Tea time.

Some of the areas that were cleared.

What a difference from those "before" shots above.

Woo hoo….. finally, a GG session when it didn't RAIN….! Similar to last week, we headed out to the water works at Lake but this time we were gainfully employed at the Wetland Walk / Picnic site. Apparently, GG has been attending this venue since 2004 and it has proven to be very popular with Team GG over the years. This time we were here for an end of season make-over, raking up the pre-cut grass, trimming back anything overgrowing the pathways and giving the numerous fruit trees a bit of a prune. Two jobs were a little more taxing…. a couple of rather large trees required sawing up and the swing gate at the site entrance was in need of partial rebuild. The work progressed very well and by the end of the session the whole area was looking "sorted".

Mark did mention that due to rearranging the GG base facilities, that the "communal" tea mugs could no long be dish-washed. It has been decided that everyone will now be responsible for their own mug so don't forget to bring it along next week…!

Many thanks to Terry for his excellent photographs this week.
