Work Day update December 2016

A big thank you to all those sturdy souls who turned out on a frosty morning (and afternoon) last Sunday to help in the Rec. While brilliantly sunny, it was a mite nippy…

Though the earth was a tad resistant to the spade, holes for the new hedge trees were dug precisely to regulation depth and circumference. On the pond clearing front, oak leaves were transported safely from water to a new resting place. And our band of junior litter-pickers were out in force too.

As due reward, helpers enjoyed a bit of a sit-down in the Clubhouse with a hot drink, a mulled wine and a mince pie to restore warmth and energy.

Another nice piece of news is that we’ve very gratefully accepted an offer of a package of around 900 bulbs courtesy of the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association and Taylors Bulbs of Spalding. As soon as we have them we’ll be popping out to get these planted, so we’ll have an even more colourful spring than usual to look forward to in the Rec.

Next Work Day – January 2017

We’ll be joined by the doughty men and women of the Enfield Conservation Volunteers for our next Work Day, which will take place in January.

We’ll let everyone know the date as soon as it’s confirmed. And, as always, we’d love to see you there!
