Wed 16th Aug 2017 - West Wight Sports and Community Centre, Freshwater. GG # 698.

Terry's Photographs.

Doing battle with the hedges.

I think a "haircut" is called for here..!

Our boss for the day as Mark was on annual leave.

Happy bag men.

A well earned tea break.

Did we cut all that? Yes, and a whole lot more.

Now, doesn't that look much better…???

This little fellow (juvenile robin) wanted to scoot off.

With the last three successive GG sessions being wet, it was nice to have a dry day to make the drive out to West Wight. Once again the street parking was almost non-existent (well done to those GG members who managed to bag a space!) so the dreaded parking ticket had to be purchased. The brief was incredibly simple…. if it is garden around the building / car park area, then make it look good! I think it is fair to say that the gardens do not get an awful lot of attention between our visits so there is always plenty to be getting on with. This was a well attended session (due to dry weather?) and everyone was soon tackling their chosen "task of the day". One really pleasant thing about working here is the kind comments we get from people using the facility, they always seem to be very happy with efforts. The staff provided us with tea/coffee/biscuits at tea break so it is a big THANK YOU to them. I feel sure that the photographs above reflect just how much was achieved in just a few short hours. To the people of Freshwater….ENJOY…!

Many thanks to Terry for taking the photographs this week.

A note for your diary. If you glance up at the title bar for this blog then you will realise that we are only TWO sessions away from our 700th GG session. Mark has hinted that there may well be cake in the offering so…… don't forget to come and help us celebrate this milestone GG session!
