Paths Refreshed

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Saturday morning in the chilly breeze.

The main purpose was to spread the wood chip generously given by tree surgeons working locally and the magnificent effort certainly warmed everyone up!

The paths look great and are much nicer to walk on now.

 

 


         

Autumn 2018 chores

There are so many tasks as we move into Autumn.
Summer has been gloriously long but our trusty team had to button up against the weather during our weekend session.

Over the last couple of weeks we have been repositioning some scrubs, clearing away the deadwood, battling with bindweed and nurturing the colour that remains in the triangular bed.
