On a much cooler evening we met up at the station for some bicep-busting watering of community planters.

Linda was in charge of litter picking and later mopping up, whilst the test of us were filling up the watering cans and then filling up the containers for plants to drink over the next few weeks. It was great to see that someone - local community or station staff - been watering some of the planters during the heatwave, which does show that people appreciate a bit of greenery to spruce up the area!

It took us good 45mins to get everything done and dusted! Helen went off for her jacket potato din dins (yum!) whilst Linda, Julia and James went off for a walk around Hainault rec where the skyscapes were fantastic and provided an awsome nature background to our walk!

well done everyone!
