    Working bee at the range.

    The day's task:  gorse, gorse and more gorse.

    We are not spraying this year, so it's cut the gorse bush down and paint the stump with poison.

    Working in teams of three, you are asked to bring good gloves, pitch forks, pole saws, loppers etc and make a dent in the worst of it. A paint brush and jam jar would be useful as well.

    Not the most pleasant of tasks, but you will be rewarded with ample refreshments and food at the end.
