NEWS - June

It is lovely to walk or cycle (slowly of course) along the Greenway at the moment and see June is bursting out all over.  There are patches of wildflowers planted by the group in previous years doing really well – ragged robin, pink campion and ox eye daises and the natural buttercups are shining brightly through the green grass. I wonder if any of the cornflowers and poppies will come up later on? 

I’m sure all will agree that the carved sculptures all look like new since they were scrubbed up by Roger, Eric and Phil with help from Ken at the last very wet volunteer morning in May – so thank you to you guys for that.

The next volunteer morning will be Saturday 17 June.  Meet at Mannings Lane South access point at 10am as last time.   We will be painting the heron with some preservative, cutting back and litter picking and possibly cleaning some of the picnic benches and seats.  I hope you’ll be able to make it.
