|This is the area we cleared up... there is a reason you can't see the hill to the left in this photo, it was pretty ugly|
what you won't read about it one of us (not going to name and shame) hit a pipe (whoops) small one fortunately, luckily it was turned off at one of the walls on the buildings near by. Nearly the whole Prefect team was involved in this. As well as two German exchange students, these girls were just walking past and decided to muck in. I found loads of Skinks (little lizards) which one of the German girls found really cute, she ended up with a skink on her hand for quite a while. Anyway we cleared the hill of ivy and weeds, revealing the bare earth beneath and years of rubbish, including a really old coke bottle, the front (minus the door) or a fire place, a radiator and some really old light bulbs.
|this is what a skink looks like|
Anyway we are planning to go back and re-plant the hillside at a later date! so this is a bit of a work in progress. Fun parts of the day were sliding down the hill pulling the ivy down (quite effective) low points were the looks we got from passers by, who must have thought we were on community service.
Oh well have a nice day/night everyone and if your ever in this part of the world come visit Waiuku and marvel at the hillside we cleaned up... oh yes and visit.
