Won't let me have zero as a distance...

After some issues with timing and road closures we made it to Barrow Farm at about 1:30. And we had missed the grand opening and being thanked by the mayor!

Fortunately, there was still plenty of tea, cakes, food and wine flowing so we chatted with various people about the absolutely outstanding transformation of the garden!

I almost feel a bit bad seeing our name on the board being thanked alongside some of the other names. The garden looks amazing.

Just a few of those we chatted to were Charlotte's mother; the reason the garden exists at all, Andrea; who is an absolute icon and can't be praised enough, Shawn from the Lions and Men's Shed; who wants Laurie on the radio, and of course Linda the mayor.

Joe did some magnificant art and Erin showed up a tad worse for wear, and a massive thank you to everyone who helped out. 14 tonnes of soil moved!

They may want us back to help with maintaining the garden so watch this space!
