Wed 2nd March 2011 - Quarr Abbey, Binstead.

This week the GG assignment was back at Quarr Abbey - a site that we visited just 3 weeks ago. A wonderful sunny morning (even if it was a little "crisp") encouraged an excellent turnout and the work we had started previously was soon underway once again. One team continued to cut the hedge down from the 20 foot level to around 3 foot while the others gathered up all the branches. Instead of feeding a chipping machine this time, we were tasked to build posted areas in the woods on the opposite side of the lane, then stack the cutting neatly between the posts. Cutting down the hedge turned out to be the easy part (except for the ever present brambles!) - the hard work involved dragging these up the lane, cutting them down to a manageable size before dragging them into the woods and stacking them. Everyone worked extremely hard and the site was cleared before we left - well done to all. Once again, a big thank you to the staff in the tea garden for the free teas and coffee at break time. I hope we didn't buy up all your wonderful sticky cakes...!

Many thanks to Carrie & Eddie for the photographs this week.
