Wed 24th July 2013 - Merstone Station.

Carrie's Photographs.

This week we were out at the old railway station at Merstone - now a beautiful nature area on the Newport - Sandown cycle track. This is one of our "regulars" and this visit was to give the area a quick makeover ready for the extra users that come with the school holidays. Several tasks were undertaken, including the repair of some of the fixed seating supports, teak oil the wooden items, re- chalk the maze and a general tidy up. The maze area had become very overgrown so the first job was to trim back the undergrowth to expose the original markings. New chalk was then applied and pounded down into place (see above photographs). The jokes were particularly awful this session..... everything from "Amazing" to "Dead end job"....! If you do decide to go out that and try the puzzle please note that you walk on the GRASS between the white lines.....NOT on the white lines (good luck).

The recent spell of hot summer weather continued which undoubtedly contributed to the large number of GGmers who attended.

Many thanks to Carrie and Mark for the photographs this week.
