See... told you that it close to rain.

On the way to our GG session this week, I found myself chanting that old rhyme, "Rain, rain, go away, come back another day"! With dark clouds on the horizon it was amazing to see just how many members turned up in the Newport Football Club car park (thanks to the stewards for letting us park there) ready for a new, exciting venue. After a short trek across the fields and along Pan Lane we found the work area with the Rangers already in attendance and working hard....! We were shown around the Country Park site and the various tasks pointed out to us as we went. Those jobs included cutting back around the previously planted saplings (some of which were disease resilient elms), removal of  plant guards and the cutting back of bramble that had started to overgrow the recently planted hedges. Perhaps it was my earlier chanting, but there were only a few light showers during the session, with the sun breaking through on the odd occasion. The photographs above show everyone strung-out along the hedge line and around the saplings, clearing away anything that was preventing the "right" things from growing. The last one shows a well cleared area with an elm sapling just to the right of centre shot. All in all a great new site to work on.... We look forward to working here again in the future - hint, hint, Mark!

Photographs supplied by Sue, Carrie and Mark - many thanks to you all!
