After months of planning our open day (in
association with the Open Garden Squares Weekend) finally arrived on
14th June. We had a few light showers but it didn't dampen the spirits
of the local families who came to have a great time building and
painting bird boxes, running around finding clues for the treasure hunt
and helping us to finish the insect hotel. Roberta very kindly came and
ran the upcycling stall where children could make pretty things out of
unwanted every day items. We also had a Tai Chi session which went down
very well with lots of the volunteers and some beautiful music from
Musica Medioca. We also managed to finish planting our bog garden which
looks fantastic and really adds some colour and hopefully wildlife in
the future. The tea and cakes went down well with the added bonus of
Pimms this year! We even appeared in the Newshopper!
We want to say a big THANK YOU to Capital
Clean-up for awarding us the funds to create our beautiful bog garden.
The money has gone to create a semi watertight bog area with many
different varieties of native bog plants that will hopefully encourage
local wildlife to find a home in this urban environment.
One of our volunteers, Dave, is raising
money for the gardens by walking the Penine Way. He is well on his way
to finishing so well done and thank you Dave! You can still donate at
We wish him all the best and hope that the blisters are not too sore!
We are sending out notification for our next AGM on Wednesday 30th July.
