Last Sunday we held a volunteer day, to improve the outside appearance of the Centre. Lots of progress was made cutting back the overgrown areas, and taking down some broken and unsightly fencing! The front of the centre is now looking much more smart and tidy. If anyone knows someone who might be able to help us repair a small area of drystone wall which has crumbled on one side, we would be delighted to hear from them- it’s a small job (we think!) and we have the stone, we just need someone with the expertise!
We hope to create a small garden area, cultivating herbs, salads and vegetables that could be used in the cafe, as well as a more attractive and welcoming landscaped area in front of the fence with low maintenance shrubs and wildflowers.
We plan to have another garden volunteer session at 2pm on Wednesday afternoon 9 June. Twiggs https://www.facebook.com/Twiggscleangreen/are going to come along and help.
If you have any surplus shrubs, flower or vegetable seedlings that you would like to donate, please bring them along to the Centre just before 9 June. If you need help with digging out shrubs and transporting them, Twiggs can help.
