All change!!

Things are moving very quickly along the border of the school garden and the new build next door.  The change has been sudden and perhaps  a bit of a shock but we should always look forward.  There is an old Cherokee Indian saying " Do not let yesterday take up too much of today".  The new fence boundary will give us a chance to redesign that part of the garden. 

In the above pictures the old mesh fence still hangs on by a thread but once the old wooden fence behind was removed the weight of the ivy and the rogue saplings from the sycamores took their toll on the mesh fence.

The contractors have now  kindly removed the fence for us and for a brief spell the area has been opened up before the new boundary fence is installed

By the end of the week the new fence will be in situ. Today the new fence posts have been installed and the next blog will almost certainly depict the new fence and probably the gate between the two properties.

Despite the rain yesterday it did clear to give the garden volunteers a brief chance for some work.  In very wet conditions underfoot the posts were sledge-hammered in ready for the reed screen which will surround the compost bins.

As the daylight faded and the rain returned a rainbow appeared in the sky

On February 21st and 22nd during half-term there will be working parties in the garden to repair the damages of the Winter and get things ready for Spring and the new year.  Do come along. Please contact the School office for details.
