Wed 25th July 2012 - Compton Bay.

While the majority of the Island residents were down at Cowes greeting the Queen & Prince Philip on the last day of the Diamond Jubilee visits, Team GG were down on the beach doing a litter pick. This Wednesday was a busy one for us - not only did we have our usual GG session but also took part in  the Bioblitz event which, this year, was held in the car park at Compton Bay.

The weather turned out to be a real scorcher - in fact it was widely reported to be the hottest day of the year to date - somewhere not far short of 30 degrees C and not much of a breeze to cool the workers down. Armed with litter pickers and rubbish sacks, we were soon patrolling the beach from Compton to the white cliffs at Freshwater, searching out litter and debris. It didn't take long for the bags to fill up and by tea break came around, a considerable pile of rubbish was at the collection point in the car park.

With the work session over, some of the team stayed for a beach picnic and a few of them were off to cool down in the sea...!

Photographs (above) were sent in by Mark.....many thanks...!
