Wed 5th Jan 2011 - Mundsley Bog, Godshill




And so we start another Green Gym year....! The GG team were back out at Mundsley Bog for the first meeting of 2011 and had several tasks to achieve. We continued the previous work with cutting back the bracken and willow, this has now been piled up and the whole area is looking much better for the "haircut". Another team worked at building two dams across the trickle of a stream that crosses this site - the idea being that this will raise the water table in the surrounding area and introduce more bog. A third team were tasked at cleaning out the ditch which takes the runoff water from the pond. The weather was kind to us (again!) and the predicted rain didn't start until after 1 pm.......phew...! There was an excellent turnout for this meeting, perhaps a few guilty people needing to burn off a few calories after the holiday period...???

Many thanks to Carrie for the photographs this week.
