Get off my turf! 6 GG Yorkies met Johnathon from St Nicks at a random triangle of green space for some turf wars.

It was very quickly noted that the mission was listed as wildflower planting and this is not what we were doing. It is however what we will be *eventually doing… watch this space.

We grabbed our tools and set to work digging up turf and piling into the middle between the benches to create a… mound of Earth. Johnathon tells us it will be good for the bees.

There were a few clashes where people ahem Leanne and Ed claimed people were standing on their turf. We reminisced about the covid hobby of turfing for a while and then it was job done and we went to the pub.

A few more sessions will be needed to remove more turf and eventually there will be some wildflower planting… promise!
