Happy New Year to everyone.
And what a splendid turnout 17 adults and 4 children for a rather warm gardening session. We had two main tasks: in the Memorial garden we continued to tidy up the perennials, sweep the leaves, and start pruning some of the bushes on the north wast side where our three lemon scented Cupressus macrocarpa are succumbing to disease.
On the Sunderland Street entrance we took out some more Aucuba, the spotted Laurel and planting 20 dark red roses donated by the council. Our Councillor Yukteshwar kumar and support staff came out and completed the task. And though our litter pick throughout the park did not result in much litter, the opportunity was taken to remove some historic rubbish from the compound. By spring we should have this cleared and fully operational. The composting compound is coming on a treat and we have started sieving the compost.
