Led by Jonathan

Elizabeth,Liz, Hannah, Rachel, Mark & Johnathan arrived at Somerlyton Gardens for our carry on from last week. It was Rachel’s 52nd deed her 50th had been done on her own so we gave her a 50 badge to mark the special occasion. Well done Rachel see you in black soon. Mark’s task was to level the ground around the compost bin, Rachel and Elizabeth tackled another of the beds, taking out everything except the roses . Some of the thistles were very sharp, thank goodness for our gloves. Liz, Hannah and Jonathan tackled the large bed dug over last week which was prepared then covered in compost ready for planting. Then all of us focused on de weeding the edges of all the beds giving a lovely finish. Before the end of time it started to drizzle so we did get rather damp, but considering the weather this afternoon we got off lightly. We cleared up, helped take the tools we’d used to the storage garage and all made our way home. Another task completed
