Ock Valley Walk, Town End, 20th July 2016

This was an impromptu session arranged mid-week to rid the town end of the Ock Path of the Himalayan Balsam for another year.

Six green gymmers turned out on what was a rather hot, yet breezy and overcast Wednesday morning for a two-hour blitz.  By 11am, the sun had appeared and the heat had become a little stifling, but fortunately we we had almost completed our task by then.

In addition to the balsam pulling, some new tree guards were fitted/replaced around some of the trees we had previously planted in this area and a general tidy-up and litter-pick was conducted.  A good morning's work!
