Tidy Sunday May 2019

The next Tidy Sunday is Sunday 5th May 2019. Please note this date for your diary:

Sunday 7th May 2019

Some members may prefer to attend on Saturday 6th April and myself and your Chairperson, John Wood, will attend on both Saturday and Sunday

These are the areas and tasks that we plan to focus on:

  • mowing grass
  • strimming grass and pathways
  • path clearance – in the North-West of the garden towards the gate
  • path clearance – in the North-East of the garden towards the gate
  • path clearance – around the central Hornbeam hedge

When the Community Garden was first constructed the paths were designed to be wheelchair-friendly. Over time grass and weeds have encroached on the edges of the paths and in some places the surface has deteriorated.

The image below is taken from Google Maps satellite view and shows how the paths have lost definition.

We are currently seeking some grant funding to allow us to carry out remedial work to the Community Gardens including restoring the pathways to their former glory.
