Wed 24th June 2020 - GG Virtual Session # 013.

All those taking part in this week's Zoom meeting....

After the excitement of last week's REAL GG session...our Zoom meeting this week seemed a little bit tame 😕 but it was nice to see everyones happy, smiling faces and have a chat about things. Although the Riverside "trial" session was considered to be a resounding success, it highlighted a few issues for working at less suitable sites in the future. One option discussed was to limit the number of people attending a particular session by pre-booking "intention to attend" - this way the number of GGmers could be managed safely. Obviously some venues lend themselves to larger numbers but most of these involve other groups (G2N, H&IOWT etc) who are still in some form of lockdown. Hopefully all this will be resolved when the government's new guidelines are understood and implemented. One group that is looking for volunteers is the Himalayan Balsam Bashing Brigade... if you are interested then please try this link   HB Pulling Link. or contact Viv.

Needless to say, just to rub salt into the wound, while we were all inside Zooming the weather outside was glorious 😡.

A couple of photographs in from our West Wight reporter...Geoff...

 " I snapped the enormous badger sett complex by the main path through Golden Hill. It is reputed to be one of the oldest and largest on the Island. "

I visited Quarr Abbey last weekend...always a lovely walk. There are take away facilities from the cafe and the pigs are now back in their pens...!

This year has been a wonderful one for growing orchids... both cultivated and wild. This one of mine flowers every year but this time around it was exceptional...!

Many thanks to Geoff for his contribution.
