Wed 29th May 2024 - Merstone Stream, Blackwater. GG # 983.

 Terry's Photographs.

Alison's Editorial.

This week we were at Birchmore with an old favourite - Himalayan Balsam pulling - for the first time this year.  The plants are not flowering yet so we did have to search for it - however once found there was plenty to keep us busy for the session.  By the end of the morning quite a bit had been pulled.  As you can see from the photos it was the start of the floppy hat season.... 

Next week is at the Riverside Centre.

Many thanks to Alison for the text and Terry for the photographs.

Wed 15th May 2024 - GG HQ Spring Clean, Shide (part 2), GG # 981.

 At the time of writing I have neither editorial or photographs, so have posted the email from Mark to describe the work......

Hi Everyone,

After much checking of various options, I've drawn a blank site wise for tomorrow I'm afraid, always tricky in bird nesting season. So instead I'll be down at the tool container again for some more tidying up, you are welcome to join me. We may have a further look at the little Honda generator. Load the van with the wood from last time for the tip run. And some more things I'm sure. But once again my apologies, it may not last 3 hours... although it did last time for sure!

Next week is looking like it is booked though. 👍

Wed 8th May - St Helens Beach. GG # 980.

Tony's Photographs. 

Alison's Editorial.

This week we were at the Duver, St Helen's. undertaking our annual litter pick.  Prior to the start of our session, we were visited by retired GG member, Derek, who was in great form, and it was lovely to see him.  The session started by us spreading out over the Duver picking litter as we went.  Unfortunately, rather a lot of dogs are let down by their owners bagging but not binning their offerings......  After tea break we moved onto the sea front and along the beach northwards.  The tide was high, so we were restricted to the top of the beach and some of us worked up into the woodland.  By the end of the morning a considerable amount of rubbish had been collected.  We all enjoyed the warm sun and calm conditions.

Many thanks to Alison for the editorial and Tony for the photographs.
