Wed 6th March 2013 - Shide Quarry, Newport.

Much confusion among the GG folk when they found out the venue was at Shide Quarry - this is normally a site we only visit at Xmas time, perhaps we were all in a time warp?  Phew! apparent not, just that Nick the ranger wants to organise some spraying to remove the persistent cotoneaster on this site, but to make this work better, we all spent a lot of time kneeling and bending to remove as much of the ground covering plant as possible. This makes the area for spraying smaller and easier to work with.  There were also some trees and buddleia to be removed and of course, a fire had to be lit to burn all the debris.

Many thanks to Carrie for contributing the above.
