With all this sun we've been having the greenery has EXPLODED!

Good thing the GG SHF crew are around for some lopping and a chopping on Well Road!

Parky Rob was at Heeley Peoples Park to meet and greet us and give us instructions for this weeks task which was to lop, chop and prune the overgrowing foliage on Well Road which was starting to get a little un-ruley and was getting in the way of prams and most definitely mobility scooters!

We got straight to it after a brief lesson from Rob in good pruning practice, cutting just after a node has bifurcated from the main branch into a shoot, to ensure good growth is maintained, very interesting!

Splitting into two teams we quickly made good the path and filled tonne bags with cuttings and disposed of them at the back of the park for composting.

On return to The Showroom we re-hydrated after the hot eve and Rachel was kind enough to share her too good to go bag whilst we watched passer byers of DOCFEST which was going on at The Showroom.

Until next time, happy running :)
