The Gardening Group expands the area it is working on

The Neigbourhood Concern Gardening Group had its fourth Sunday evening of activity on 17th May. I wasn't there myself this time, as I was due to leave MCC for Scotland - where I am now - a few days later and was busy, frantically even, clearing up the house before my departure. The photographs below were forwarded to me by Barbara (Franken) and taken by Alan (Buck). Barbara provided some of the words, too, to allow me to write what follows. This week 17 people came along and did a lot of hard work involving weeding and planting as well as being involved in organising 'donations' activities. Some of the hard work involved clearing out rocks and flattening the ground - exhausting but satisfying to see what had been achieved.

The top of the area (between Manzanas 31 & 33) is now looking good and it is hoped this area will be finished off next week (allowing other areas to be started on). Hazel and Richard produced an excellent cold buffet which included delights such as delicious blue cheese and paté sandwiches, fruit kebabs and much more! Just to show that everyone, resident or not, can provide valuable assistance, one couple who were here this weekend came along to help, bringing with them a large bag of compost, rocks, plant pots and plant cuttings for the communial garden - such contributions are really useful so thanks go to them for using some of their short stay here to come along and help.

"All volunteers most welcome!"
- please come along next Sunday at 7pm!
