Laurie Wilkinson earned their community cape by completing their first community mission.
Laurie completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Laurie was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.

This evening we ventured to Botley to blitz the inevitable litter hotspots that build up and hide under the autumn leaves
A slightly chaotic start due to gridlock traffic necessitated chats about the weather and crisp sandwiches (always a good idea).
Once all were present and correct the garland of joy was presented to our newest and most unofficial member Miss Penelope! Thank you Julia for bringing her to meet us all!
We set out lights and litter-pickers in hand to tackle a few grot spots and amassed a large mountain of bags before our time was up. Items found ranged from the depressing (sharps, dealt with safely) to joyous (£10 given to Ben to take to the Halloween quiz), and the inevitable pants!
You are all wonderful and apologies again for my late arrival and stressful witterings!

Round 2 of bulb planting for 2022, and this time it was a tiny bit less of a battle thanks to recent rain. That said, there was still plenty of times when even putting our full body weight on the spades didn't get them deep enough into the ground to get bulbs planted! Cassie the pup kept us all in line, Ben and Simon put on a veritable masterclass in bulb-planting teamwork, racing ahead of the rest of us to plant up about 30% of the area, and Sophie showed off expert spade-balancing skillz.
We've now filled the gap in the daffodil planting on the Marston Road, and also got all of Marsh Lane planted up, as well as several residential roads in the area. We know that the spring display is very much enjoyed by local residents, and on some of the streets it has inspired the residents to supplement our planting with their own, which is a lovely result. We had a few thanks from passing residents last night and we're all looking forward to the cheery sight of the daffodils along this busy route into Oxford in the spring.
