Busy day in the garden

We had a very productive day in the garden on Thursday. We had a big team from Community Payback, plus several Streets and Open Spaces staff, people dropping by and helping out. We planned to:

  • Get some old paving slabs, found in the garden, laid perfectly by the club hut door so we can make a ramp for easier access;
  • Start to prepare a base for a new storage shed, with the spare soil being used to top up the raised beds;
  • Clean and re-varnish the benches and the picnic table;
  • Start to prepare a meadow bed by the bare fence in the park.

We didn't plan to witness a massive fight in the pond from two drakes... or have sun so strong at least one person applied sunscreen. Quite a day.
