Nine of us ran/walked to park hill to meet Josi from friends of park hill for another installment of peace poles.

The poles had been beautifully painted by students at the local school and members of the Croydon Soroptomist Group. After taking some time to ensure they were in the best positions in the garden, we began by digging a big hole. We then attached the poles to the ground stake and hammered them into the ground. It was important to use the spirit level to check they were straight! Once they were upright we were able to cement them into place where they make a vibrant and colourful addition to the walled garden.

Whilst we were doing all this we even had a bit of extra time to move some more woodchip onto the beds in the medicinal herb section of the garden!

Join us for our task next week to see what we are up to!
