Wed 6th Dec 2017 - Munsley Bog, Godshill. GG # 714.

As with many things in life...if you do them for long enough then part of it becomes "tradition". Green Gym is no exception to this so... as it was the second to last session of the year we were at Munsley Bog in Godshill for a workout before going off to the GG Christmas lunch. Things were a little different this year as the "Big Lunch" was at the Dairyman's Daughter in Arreton rather than somewhere local in Godshill.
This year we were working at cutting back and raking on the area to the north of the boardwalk. It is always surprising just how much grows in just one year but it is no match for a band of GGmers..! Everything that was cut down or raked up was transported to the perimeter of the land then carefully piled up so all is left looking neat and tidy.
Although it was a grey, overcast, day it stayed dry throughout and the temperature was a bit higher than the average for this time of the year. Pleased that we are not working there later in the week as storm Caroline is forecasted for then....gale force winds and wintery showers - yuck.

Next week will be our final session of 2017 so, as tradition dictates, we will be at the Chalk Pit in Shide. Please can all those who have agreed to bring food and utensils along REMEMBER TO BRING THEM.

Photographs will be added as they arrive.
