I am amazed at how few sessions we have had to cancel over the Winter (maybe two or three, due to rain) and how much we have achieved. Now, if you volunteer with us, you can sign up to the Streets and Open Spaces Volunteering Scheme and through it earn Time Credits.  Rina from the Council signed up several of our garden volunteers on Monday.

We made a new bed for sweet peas and started a support from willow from a nature reserve nearby - thanks Vic!

We were happy to move our bowls support back into the garden, again for sweet peas or similar...
