Wed 16th Sept 2020 - Merstone Station. GG # 829.

 Terry's Photographs.

The setting for today's venue.

Mark giving us a brief...lots of Covid rules to follow..!

Away we go..back to REAL work 😊

Making hay while the sun shines..?

Of course we can squeeze in another bag....

A well earned (socially distant) tea break.

How to do a 4 man lift whilst remaining 2 metres apart.

The finished job...doesn't the orchard look good now..!

Not bad for a morning's work.
Nature Corner.

Now...that really is luxurious high rise living for insects.

A little vole that wanted to hide under a sack.
He soon scampered safely away.

Back out "in the field" this week....YAY..! This time of the year we usually visit Merstone Station to carry out what Mark terms "The Great British Rake Off" and in spite of ever changing Covid-19 regs, we have managed to get back there once again.  The rangers pre cut the summer grass and it is our job to collect it all up and give the place a full makeover before the winter months set in. The photographs above show exactly what is involved and the space made it is easy to conform to a maximum of 6 in each working party with all individuals staying socially distant. The weather was kind, warm and sunny and we had a good turnout of GGmers.

Due to the present "unusual" circumstances, it isn't possible to have our program publish in advanced. Mark did hint about a few possible future venues so keep an eye on your e-mails for further updates.

Stay safe everyone.

Many thanks to Terry for the photographs this week.
