Wed 15th Feb 2012 - Mundsley Bog, Godshill.



Well a big change at this week's Green Gym venue, which was Mundsley Bog in Godshill. The sun shone and overall it was a very balmy 12 degrees!!!!. At least this meant we could forgo the ubiquitous bonfire. Our tasks this week were threefold. One group set too to rebuild the steps which lead down into the bog, as these have become very diffcult and slippery to negotiate. Group two were repairing the boardwalks with new chicken wire to make access safer. Group three - the largest one - were working on the part of the site nearest the steps to clear the area around the trees and the bank up to the boundary fence, where we uncovered several groups of daffodils, which will have a better chance of survival now we have cleared the ground and opened it up to more light and warmth. As an added bonus, Mark and Steve spotted the first butterfly we have seen this year, a very beautiful peacock - see told you it was warm!!

Many thanks to Carrie for the editorial and photographs.
