Spotted in the woods - NOT "bush tucker" for the BBQ!

Our GG session this week was extra special..... it was the 500th GG session here on the Island and also our 10th Anniversary...! As the first ever session was held at Fort Victoria, it was fitting that we returned there for this most auspicious event. Needless to say, there was a huge attendance which had NOTHING to do with the BBQ, scruptious home made cakes and all sorts of "goodies" both for the tea break and the after session party. Somehow, we even managed to squeeze in a few hours work which included a few "tidy-up" jobs up in the woods and the fitting of a new gate at the picnic site. The gate had a sign recognising the special date for GG (look at the photographs above) and a lot of work was involved in sinking the 6" square oak posts and hanging the gate correctly. All GGmers were presented with a commemorative wooly hat to mark the occasion...! Lots of photographs taken so keep look-out for them in future issues of the County Press, Beacon etc NOTE! There is a nice write-up and photograph in the County Press, dated 20th Sept, page 21.

Many thanks to all the people who brought along the delicious food and drink, to the BBQ chefs, to the committee for the hats and....last but by no means least - to Mark, for making everything GG possible.

Hip, Hip, Hooray .........Hip, Hip Hooray,....... Hip, Hip, Hooray.......! Roll on our 20th Birthday.

Many thanks to Sue, Terry, Alison and Tony for the photographs this week.
