Wed 28th Aug 2013 - Lanesend Primary School, Cowes.

It was an early start to the accademic year for Team GG as our session was held at the Lanesend Primary School in Cowes. The plan was that we should give certain areas of the school grounds a makeover before the children return next week. We split the group into two sections, one working on a courtyard area planters and the remainder tackling what can only be described as a "raised wild area" in the corner of the playground. The planters had become overgrown with plants and weeds during the summer break and looked much better once the GG Gardening team (our very own Ground Force!) had worked their magic. Meanwhile, out on The Mound...... the rest of us were hacking back the undergrowth, pruning trees, grass cutting etc so that this useful wildlife habitat area would be more accessible to the children. Certain parts were left undisturbed due to evidence of animal activity. Attendance for the session was suprisingly high considering how many people are away on holidays at this time of year, perhaps the warm sunshine attracted them out! Well done to all those who attended and a big thank you to the school staff who gave us tea and biscuits.

Many thanks to Mark for supplying the photographs this week.
