March 2022 - compost and summer planting

The summer planting will take place at the end of May into early June. We propose to use peat free compost with the addition of manure and fertiliser. We hope for red, white and blue flowers as it is the Queen's Platinum Jubilee this summer.

Summer Planting 2021 will be on Saturday 5 June. We'll meet at the Ziggurat at 9.30am. The beds will be planted the following Thursday. This week we'll top up the compost. The watering list is done, all areas are covered by people who live nearby.

Mill Wheel site: The back of the site has been strimmed. Linda will price bark and gravel.

West Green paving: This has been approved by the Town Council. 15 paving slabs will be priced for the tubs to stand on. Some of the tubs are rotting and will need replacing. All the tubs will need fertiliser before the winter planting. We will continue until early November. In the Spring we'll look for new recruits.

2020 - Showfield car park community garden

Our latest project was the creation of a new community garden at the entrance to the Showfield car park. This project was made possible through a grant from the Co-op's Community Fund and with assistance from Co-op contractors Ground Force, who provided labour and machinery to clear the tired old shrubs from the site. After a lot of hard work by volunteers the site has now been completely cleared and dug over, and replanting is well underway. A beautiful new path and seating area have been created by local landscaper David Weighell.
