31 May & 7 June 2012 – Dingwall Green Gym joined with Midweek Group
We’ve been a bit quiet on the blogging front up here in Inverness, but do not fear, we have been working hard pulling out the Himalayan Balsam! Our seasoned Green Gym’ers must be thinking “not again!” but they do keep returning, along with the newer ones so it must be good fun!
These last 2 Thursdays saw us join the Dingwall Greem Gym with the Midweek Group, which happily gives us lots more bodies, but it does ensure a certain amount of chaos on our end – 2 minibuses, 2 tea kits (let’s not mention that the first week the spare hot flasks were forgotten *ahem*), Green Gym’ers arriving later and leaving at lunch time, and not to mention that Midweek rumbles the fact we give the GG’s an extra mid morning coffee break!
The second Thursday had fewer bodies all round but the sunny weather ensured much enthusiasm for the task at hand. We had also progressed onto the north side of our field/ditch, which is always good to take a minute to ponder at, especially when you’re working in what seems like a never ending sea of balsam!
Hopefully this week will see us joined again with plenty volunteers to get our production line going again!! As always more photos can be found on our Flickr Page.
