This page will show what we are doing in the various areas we work on around the town.
At our work session this week (23rd May 2023) we were busy planting up the hanging baskets and troughs for a bright and colourful flower display all around the centre of town.
At our work session (6th June 2023) the hanging baskets and tubs were hung around the town. Beautiful!

We started on this bed in March 2023. It had previously been cultivated but got neglected over the years, so we decided to give it some TLC and make it look gorgeous again.

March 2023 - a bit of fun! Trying to brighten up an otherwise forgotten corner.
A small area near the entrance to Redgate Park - very shady and dry. Quite a challenge, but looking good July 2023
Added to our repertoire in 2022, Pullmans Lane is beginning to be a real bright spot - this taken July 2023

June 2023 - a great hoard from the potager which will be donated to the Community Church Food Bank
The idea behind the potager is for everyone to be able to help themselves to bits of veggies - so please get stuck in, just remember to leave some for others!
