Wed 1st Oct 2008 - Rew Down Ventnor.






The GG venue this week was up on Rew Down, overlooking Ventnor. The rangers had us tasked to do what we are really good at - Cut & Burn...! This end of the down has become very overgrown and we are helping to cut it back, returning it to chalk grassland. The pictures above fail to show just how steep the hill is but one leg about a foot longer than the other would certainly be an advantage! It was an excellent turnout, shown by the group shots above, but the weather was starting to show the signs of autumn. The wind was quite strong but a couple of rain showers failed to dampen our spirtits - or the bonfire. Good progress was made at cutting back the bramble and shrubs, so much so that a good length of the fencing could be seen by the end of the session.
Many thanks to Hilary and Carrie for the photographs.
