A weekend’s work

A group of committee members and other plotholders set to work on the water-harvesting and composting area in the top car park at the weekend.

They painted the structure and levelled the ground behind it ready for the water barrels to be installed.

Strimming was also carried out on other areas of the site.

Pearl Barton kindly provided the volunteers with tea, coffee and bacon rolls when the work was finished.

A few committee members and other plotholders took up their watering cans at the weekend to water the barbecue area by the large container where grass seed was sown recently.

The grass is growing well but needed a helping hand in this dry spell. The water used was all rainwater collected from the water harvester in the main car park.

The working party also strimmed public areas on the site and carried out other maintenance work.

Groundwork

Today’s working party carried on clearing the ground beside the big container so that grass can be sown there in spring.

We had two rotovators in action and a small team of helpers picking up rubble, glass and all manner of other debris in their wake
