Wed 26th Feb 2014 - All Saints' Church, Freshwater.

Mark's Photographs.

Carrie's Photographs.

With the sun streaming through the window, it was the first time this year that the wet weather gear could be left at home when setting off to GG. Having to avoid the Yarmouth road closure added to the travelling time for some but the numerous GGmers attending showed just how popular this venue is. The task was to assist the church wardens in a general pre-spring cleanup around the church grounds. Initially, we concentrated on collecting all the fallen branches that the recent gales had "pruned" and then branched out (excuse the pun) into other jobs as they became apparent. Teams were involved with cutting back overgrown areas of undergrowth and shrubs, cleaning out the drainage gullies around the church, digging over flower beds, tiding up some of the more neglected graves and general maintenance around the site. All the cut materials were transported to a roaring bonfire which made quick work of the disposal! At this time of the year the churchyard is a picture with all the bulbs in bloom but this means that you have to be very careful where you tread.
Many thanks to the church wardens for the tea, coffee and cake - always a winner with Team GG...!

Thanks for the photographs Carrie and Mark!
