2. Around 10 of us enjoyed a wild flower walk last week.  I was amazed that within the small area by Brook Lane Bridge and Northgate Pond, we identified at least 29 different flowers!!  Thanks very much to Chris Rowlands and Ian Donnelly for inspiring this walk.

3. As you know the wicker horse is rather dilapidated and we have been trying to get a quote to have it professionally repaired, however Nic Siddle has taken the initiative and planted 2 different varieties of jasmine at the horse’s feet and these are taking quite well, and so hopefully with a little  time and patience the horse will come alive again.  Arnold has also been able to source some willow and in the Autumn we will have a go at repairing the framework of the horse’s face so the jasmine will have a good foundation.
