13 apparently, in 83 holes, with 3 per hole, except one which has 4.

🧅 Great work, team! 🌷

Last night was bring-a-friend night so it was lovely to be joined by Jade and Maxine and 13 other imaginary friends. 👻

Most of us met at the Bridge House, shared our names and the name of a famous person we'd like to be friends with. God, Stephen Fry, that Canadian astronaut??? There were some very good choices.

We hit the road in two groups, tackling 2k or 3.5k and met Lou from the Friends of Cator Park who was prepped with shovels, forks and 2 buckets of bulbs.

We took turns digging deep to make sure the bulbs were squirrel-proof. Once all the bulbs were in place we patted the soil down with our feet and jogged back to the pub for a beverage. 👍👍
