Many Hands Make Light Work of Community Dig

Around a dozen volunteers turned out on Sunday 19th July, armed with spades, forks and even a mattock, to begin work clearing the very weedy and unsightly verge in Clifford Dibben Mews, just off Avenue Road. Such was the turn out and the effort that the whole area was cleared and dug over in couple of hours, aided by welcome refreshments from nearby neighbours. The patch is now ready for digging in a good load of council-donated compost ready for late-summer planting with bulbs, lavender and low-maintenance shrubs. We have registered this latest Greening Group initiative as our contribution to the RHS’s current Greening Grey Britain project. Thank you to everyone who came along to help and make such a rapid difference.
