War on Ragwort

Today was spent at the southern-most tip of the Ards Peninsula, County Down, viz. Ballyquintin Point.

We all met at the old schoolhouse on Portaferry Road and proceeded by National Trust trucks to our destination.


Today we were uprooting the remaining ragwort in a field known as Spence's Field.


Although we only numbered about eight, we all managed to complete the task.

It was clement enough weather till lunchtime, when the rain arrived, so we had our packed lunches in a large barn.

Salmon and cucumber sandwiches were on the menu for self today.

Well that's very civic-minded of you and I am deeply impressed.
