It was feeling decidedly autumnal in Gunnersbury Park last night, which was appropriate because our job was back to tackle those brambles which are so keen to take over!

The team set off armed with clippers and rakes for the trees and set about hacking, lopping and clearing. After an hour of hard work several huge bags were filled with the pesky intruders, and while the final piles were packed up a lucky (haha) group of six were taken off to endure a fitness session.

As it gradually got completely dark - which was perhaps why one GGer almost had to spend the night with the tools in the lodge - we called it a night. (Sorry Chris)

A special massive CONGRATULATIONS to Emily's for her (almost) 100th good deed! Way to go Emily - give her a cheer everybody!
