Wigpool FC/GWT Reserve

Grid Ref SO652195


As expected, a large team turned up for our winter barbecue. However, they all had to do some work first! Our GWT Ranger treats us at Christmas every year and, this time, he had all the cooking to do although there were a few plaintive calls for help from him! The team continued to clear another glade whilst he was busy!

The three Exmoor ponies have been moved to join their companions on Edgehills Bog for the rest of the winter. This makes it more convenient to provide them with hay over the winter months.







Here are the team tucking in.






We had a feast of sausages and burgers, mince pies (which were really good after being warmed up on the BBQ) and Bucks Fizz.





Just to show that we did work although there seems to be a lot of the team standing around.....
