We appear to have a few

pretty little snowdrops

dotted around the slopes.

the fabulous Silver Birches

look rather splendid

against the blue sky.

The trees are full

of chirping birds.

Turning a Space into a Place…

A very big
THANK YOU
to everyone who came along to our
Planting Day

The morning began

with blue and yellow plastic bags

filled with bulbs

dotted about the place…

Then the volunteers set about digging holes
and planting crocuses, snowdrops and daffodils.

Volunteers worked hard with the planting
before having a well-earned
tea break (with biscuits!)

Local Counsellors Tim Young & Dave Harris
came fully prepared with strimmers and spades.

getting involved, helping out.
