Wed 17th Oct 2018 - Riverside Centre, Newport. GG #757.

Alison's Photographs.

Mark's Photographs.

Hard at work on just one of the many flower (weed?) beds.

When undergrowth becomes overgrowth.

Mark was doing his Widow Twanky's Laundry act
washing all the Hi-Viz jackets after the session..!

This week we had a return visit to the Riverside Centre to continue the work we started two months ago. Due to the Quay bridge still being out of action and no access via Hillside, it was a bit of a trek to go around via Fairlee to get access. The next problem was that the car park was filled to bursting point was time to dig deep into the pocket and feed the parking meter. The things we do to go along to GG sessions...! Mark explained that we had the full run of the site as there is hardly a flower bed or hedge that doesn't need attention. Once we had all donned our hi-viz jackets it was off to try and tame the jungle. One of the most overgrown areas was the top car park where the undergrowth had become overgrowth (see picture above). Come tea break the refreshments were rolled out to us on a trolley - tea, coffee and bacon or sausage baps which were welcomed by almost all (we do have a couple of vegetarians in our numbers!) Then it was back to work but, by then, the mizzle had turned to drizzle and then on to rain - so a wet end to the session. Considering the problems getting there, parking and the dull weather, we had a good turnout and a lot of work was achieved.

Many thanks to the catering staff who looked after us so well at tea break and to Alison & Mark for the photographs.
