Wed 16th Oct 2019 - Pan Mill Meadows, Newport. GG # 806.

Terry's Photographs.

A rather "damp" start to the session.

Grab a few tools...

..and get started..!

Lots and lots of bag dragging..!

The tea break team chat.

work done on the northern approach path.

A beautifully "manicured" meadow - all ready for
next year's growth.

A common frog found on the pathway.

We always seem to get an end of season visit to this rake up the cut meadow and give the whole area a makeover before winter sets in. We have had more than our fair share of rain in October this year but the overnight rain petered out as we started work...yay..! The majority of the task was to rake-up all the cut area and drag it off to for composting. Because the cuttings were wet, and therefore heavy, it made the task particularly hard going. The trees that were in the centre of the meadow had a light prune to remove the lower branches and trees/shrubs that were around the periphery were trimmed where needed. The entrance path to the north of the site was given particular attention (see the before and after photos above). This was a well attended session with all the given tasks being completed - well done everyone..!

Many thanks to Terry for taking the photographs this week.
