Wed 4th Oct 2012 - Corf Camp, Shalfleet.

This week team GG were back at what is becoming a regular venue in our calendar - the Corfe scout camp. Although the weather has been pretty wet leading up to our session, we managed to stay dry which encouraged a good turnout. Our task was to improve the drainage along one of the main pathways so, after cutting back the overhanging growth, it was all hands to the spades and shovels! Excellent progress was made and as can be seen from the photograph above, a good section of ditching was completed.

Mark's Award - The Merlin Trophy 2012.

The two photographs above show the Merlin trophy and certificate that was presented to Mark by the Campaign to Protect Rural England. The wording on the certificate reads as follows....

This certificate is awarded to Mark Russell of Green Gym for

The work you do for the Island, for the inspiration you generate in others,
for the guidance and teaching you provide for people who could be considered to be disadvantaged but clearly blossom under your expert care in the countryside.

I am sure that all the members of Team GG will agree wholeheartedly with the above and would join with me in giving Mark our congratulations on winning such a prestigious award.

Many thanks to Carrie, Tony and Martin for the photographs this week.
