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.
