A few weeks ago we were very excited to
collaborate with Project Dirt in welcoming a group of corporate
volunteers to Winsford Gardens. The lovely staff of Dentsu Aegis came
with great enthusiasm and helped us start our wildlife meadow fence
which we had decided to rebuild in a more sturdy fashion. They also
helped with clearing the wildflower meadow of plant matter in
preparation for the winter and other tasks. Many thanks to Project Dirt
and Denstu Aegis for making the day a great success.

load of soil improver from the council and will be spreading it over
the beds to keep them warm for winter.
