Wed 26th March 2014 - Yarmouth Green.

The trip out to West Wight for GG took longer than normal due to the top road being closed at Bouldner for roadworks, thereby necessitating a lengthy de-tour. Having had the last couple of Wednesday mornings with nice sunny weather, it was back to normal for our session this week - at least three layers of warm clothing and a woolly hat! With a sharp NE wind blowing from across the harbour, everyone was eager to start work so they could warm up. Two main tasks were allocated for our attention, planting numerous native tree and shrub cuttings along the hedge line and clearing up storm damaged trees (plus the usual, but equally important, litter pick and general tidy-up). It was decided that the bramble stripping from the established hedging should be put on hold as it is starting to get close to the bird nesting season. Perhaps not quite as many GGmers this week but the ones that did attend completed all the allocated tasks and the Green was looking shipshape by the end of the session.

Thank you to  Mark for taking the photographs this week.
