Wed 19th Feb 2014 - Parkhurst Forest, Newport.

Mark's Photographs.

Carrie's Photographs.

Green Gym this week was a continuation of the work we started a few weeks ago, clearance of trees and shrubs in Parkhurst Forest. This is to ensure that the native plants have a chance to grow thereby improving the habitat for butterflies, some of which are becoming increasingly rare. Considering how wet some of our sessions have been recently, it was great to see some sun for this one. Knowing where we had to work in the forest improved our times for driving from the main car park to the work area, negotiating the woodland tracks. It was a well attended, resulting in many habitat piles been created by the time we all came to leave.

2014 IoW Hedge-laying Competition. Please note that the competition due to be held on Saturday 22nd Feb has been cancelled. This is due to concerns about flooding and site safety resulting from the recent spell of bad weather.

Photographic Competition Result. The "Guess your GG Chum" quiz has now been claimed and the grand prize of two extra biscuits awarded. As it was a team effort, the two members were awarded one extra biscuits apiece - well done ladies!

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