The Friends are now allowed to hold Work Parties in the Park, although we are restricted to no more than 6 volunteers at a time, and of course we have to follow the Govt's rules!
On Saturday 6 volunteers went to work in the Community Garden to make up for some of the neglect of recent months. They were assisted by David, a Park Ranger from the Council, who came armed with a strimmer, which he used to clear paths through the Community Garden. He also cleared a lot of tall weedy growth, and trimmed the Ground Elder to stop it from from shedding its seeds. The strimming revealed a frog near the mini ponds, which fortunately managed to avoid being decapitated.
Meanwhile the Friends cut the heads off dock, pulled up thistles, cleared patches of bramble, did a tidy by the pub access road, cleared around the fruit trees and cleared the slope behind the pollinator patch.
What an excellent afternoon's work!
