Wed 21st Dec 2022 - Shide Quarry, Newport. GG # 915.

Terry's Photographs.

For the final GG session of each  year it has become something of a tradition that we work at the Old Chalk Quarry, Shide - this year was no exception. As can be seen from the photographs, there is always plenty of summer growth that needs a serious pruning. The weather was somewhat warmer than it has been recently but unfortunately there was the occasional rain shower. With mince pies to be had at tea break it was a nice way to end out the year.

Many thanks to the Team GG members who have made 2022 so successful, we look forward to seeing you all in 2023.

Phil's New Year Walk ... On the Wednesday 4th January Phil has planned us a lovely walk to get us moving again after the Christmas excesses. 
Meet in Shorwell at 10.30 opposite Shorwell Church (road parking).  He says around a 5 kilometer walk, around a downland valley with an optional 3 km extension around ancient manor houses. The 2nd part may be damp underfoot depending on the weather. A lunch opportunity afterwards at The Crown Inn.

Wed 14th Dec 2022 - Munsley Bog, Godshill. GG # 914.

 Terry's Photographs.

This week GG were at Munsley Bog, Godshill for what was a VERY cold session ⛄- ok there wasn't exactly snow but it was very frosty..! As per usual the task was to rake off all the pre cut material and give the place a good tidy up. On completion most of the GGmers retired to The Griffin pub for the GG Christmas Lunch.

Many thanks to Terry for taking the photographs.

At the time of publishing, I don't have any editorial for this will be added when (if?) received.
It was certainly a VERY cold northerly wind blowing but it looks as though everyone kept warm by being busy - well done to all 👏.

Many thanks to Terry for the photographs.
