Wed 11th Nov 2015 - Christ Church, Totland. GG # 610.

A bit of GG advertising...

The hedge planting team.

Clearing up old trimmings.

Trim and tidy up amongst the grave stones.

Anyone need a bonnet for a Morris 1000…?

Busy, busy….busy….

Newly planted hedge….nice!

Burning up the old hedge….

NEVER overload the barrow.

Getting light into those dark corners.

Looking much tidier.

That will be 5 pence for each of the carrier bags.

Unless someone asks GG to whitewash the Needles, it is doubtful that we will ever get a more westerly venue than this one! It is always exciting to work at a new site and the visit to Christ Church certainly didn't disappoint. We were briefed on the wide variety of tasks that needed to be undertaken (excuse the pun!) everything from planting trees, cutting down shrubs, burning dried material plus the usual litter and tidy duties. Everyone was soon busy at their chosen jobs and one whole side of the churchyard was transformed by the end of the session. Hopefully, the photographs will reflect the amount of work achieved. As it was Armistice Day, at 11:00 we observed the two minutes silence before having our tea break in the church hall. The weather was overcast but very mild for mid November and there was just a light shower towards the end of the session.

This week's great photographs were from Sue…… thank you!
