August Efforts

Forgive the pun. Well, today’s Community Sunday gathering just went to show – when the going gets tough, the tough get going!

Anyone for a little light weeding?
Witness the benefits of Community Payback schemes
They also serve, who sit and stare
Just call me the Chain_Gang Boss: it’s dirty work, but somebody’s got to do it.
Coffee and Cake: for what we are about to receive, may we be spared food poisoning.
It’s time to go for Ron’s Rock Cakes again while nobody’s watching.

Apologies to all who were not photographed today and to all whom the captions offend. We had approaching 20 participants and got a fantastic amount of work done. Huge thanks to all who managed along – but next month we can squeeze in a few more for sure. We look forward to seeing you then.

August Community Sunday

All set for this Sunday’s efforts? Coffee and cake as ever. Or a chance to check out the new lawnmower!

Community Sunday Success

Huge thanks go to everyone who helped make today’s Community Sunday (perhaps) the very best ever. Too many to name, but thanks to all. Lots done and great fun.

Apologies to the many who missed out on a photo – The photographer was being worked way too hard.

Community Sunday July 2019

This Sunday is our last opportunity to get set for our It’s Your Neighbourhood assessment visit at the beginning of August. Please come along if you can spare an hour or so to help.

It’s BBQ time!

Plotters and our volunteers, along with their families and friends, are invited to our Summer Barbecue

Kaimhill Party-Party!

We welcomed a group of fifty Kaimhill Primary kids, staff and parents on site for the last visit of the term this week.

Huge thanks go to all the plotters who helped out on the day – some at very short notice. We were able to muster a team of over ten, making the plot visits for the near-fifty kids much more engaging and interesting. It’s great to know we can count on this sort of support when spreading the joys of gardening out to the next generation.
