The team split into two groups today with Ady, Graham and Joss working together to clear an overgrown area behind the tennis courts.
This area has been left for a number of years with the brambles taking over, a good source for blackberries though. Along with Elder, Ivy and other overgrown shrubs the lads had a huge task to restore the area to some kind of order.
By the end of a hard day and numerous trips to the chipper they reached the half way point, their task continues tomorrow.
