This was my first time out with the Green Angels. I was really nervous because I didn’t know anyone else there but I quickly made friends with a girl who liked the same things as me. We went to Capielaw woods where spent the morning clearing rhododendron bushes and throwing the clippings on the fire. After lunch we had a choice of either continuing  to clear the rhododendron bushes or we could do snedding which is cutting the lower branches of the trees (i think).

Then we used kelly kettles which was fun. Because fire! After that a few people wanted to do the thing where  you are all blindfolded and hold onto a rope while someone guides you. I can’t remember what it’s called.  I really enjoyed it the whole thing and am looking forward to the next one!
