Wed 27th Oct 2021 - Pan Country Park, Newport. GG # 858.

 Terry's Photographs.

So many GGmers today that
we managed to over-fill the car park..!

Clearance work in the small copse.

Loading up the arisings.

Serious tree pruning..!

Time for tea and a chat....

...then back to work.

Now...doesn't that look neat and tidy 👏

It has been some time since Team GG was at this venue, Mark did have a dig in the archives and came up with this from the blog   - I am not sure if that was our last visit there as we have also been back with the Wildlife Warriors hat on. Certainly there are a LOT more houses and roads there now..!
As with most areas we work at, the job was relatively simple,  trim everything back and give it all a good tidy up. Certainly there was a lot of dead wood to cut back and a lot of coppicing to do so a good job we had a excellent turn-out today 👍. Considering we are almost at the end of October, the temperatures are still holding up well although we didn't see a lot of the sun due to a rather grey, cloudy sky. 

Mark mentioned that our next meeting is likely to be at the orchard area, next to Sandown Golf Club and the water treatment plant. As per usual, keep an eye on your e-mail box for the final details.

Many thanks to Terry for the photographs, hope the leg heals quickly..!
