Wed 18th Nov 2015 - Merstone Station. GG # 611.


GG receives another award..!




A rather overgrown platform.



Better get started then…lots to do!







"I seem to have been waiting for ever for the train to arrive."




A long haul to the composting area.




WOW….What a difference - well done everyone.



With the remnants of Storm Barney still blowing itself out, it was a rather breezy session for Team GG this week. The task seemed simple enough, tidy up the old platform area…. but it took whole session to complete! Fortunately we had an exception number of GGmers in attendance so the majority of the work was completed by the end of play. To try and hand cut the whole platform (a large area of wet, long grass) and to remove much of the ivy that grows up the sides - before transporting all the cuttings some distance to the composting area was no mean feat.
After our tea break we were presented with a certificate and cheque from the CPRE (click this link for further info CPRE link) for the weekly efforts we undertake to collect and dispose of all the rubbish and litter at the sites where we work.
Although the clouds looked very threatening throughout the morning, we managed to stay dry this week…. thank goodness!

Many thanks to Terry for taking the excellent photographs.
