9 GG Yorkies met on a glorious* Yorkshire evening to help Danesgate School overhaul their reception/front garden. This was GG’s 3rd visit to the school and there was still a lot of work to do. The area was so overgrown the roots were longer than Mitch!

Viking Vicky and Emma attacked the bramble roots with force and a few blueberry plants may have been hurt in the massacre. Leanne, Pork Belly (Paul) and Mitch lopped to their hearts content taking down the overhanging bushes. Whilst Cara and Liz fought with the wildly ivy. Fergie dog had a great wheelbarrow ride with Ed.

There’s still some unfinished business with those pesky roots so no doubt we’ll be back again!
