Team GG start to arrive and take in the wonderful views.

The pile of limestone had become rather consolidated!


Back to the van for more tools.

Wow….where did all that bramble go???

Wow, yet another new venue for us GGmers to attend on a Wednesday morning! Most of us arrived without too much of a navigational issue and were directed to the parking area. A tour of the facilities and a detailed explanation of the proposed work package led us to believe that we would be hard pushed to get everything done on this first visit…! It is well established that Team GG are never daunted by hard work so it was go…go…go. With part of the team building a new pathway and others clearing a rather overgrown area plus various other tasks being undertaken, it was a good job that we had such a good turnout. If you did manage to take a quick workbreak then it was hard not to look around at the stunning views over Godshill and the surrounding farmland. Although that cool easterly wind was still present, the top layers of clothing were soon discarded due to the pleasant sunshine and hard graft. Many thanks for allowing us to use the classroom and facilities for the tea break.
Rather than try and describe the work in detail, I invite you to view the photographs above which show most aspects of the tasks undertaken.

Many thanks to Terry and Giles for taking the excellent photographs.
