GoGo Gorse

Tuesday, December 8th 2015

Today started fair and bright, as our eager bunch of volunteers headed out onto the moor, the task in hand was to cut back numerous Gorse thickets that are beginning to encroach onto the path.

The ground was very wet underfoot and it was a little breezy which meant getting a fire going was a bit tricky to begin with, but perseverance pays off and it eventually took hold. A brief shower just before lunch came out of the blue but we were rewarded with a fantastic double rainbow.

We managed to clear a good section of the moor today, unfortunately the heavens decided to open up again in earnest, just as we were finishing off, which meant it was a soggy end to the day. Damp but not disheartened.

Thank you to everyone who came out today, you all worked really hard and it has made a really big impact.
