Tom and me were back at Hodgkin park to tackle the massive overgrowth of Laurel bushes bordering the upper park.

Someone had dragged up 4 wheelie bins and set fire to them right in the middle of the path and Mike, the ranger, spent a good part of the morning clearing up that act of vandalism.

After 2 hours of hard work we've managed to clear up a pretty good part of the park. We reckon the next session in three weeks time should help clear the rest of the bushes up.
