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!

last night we ran 6.1km in humid temperature to St Augustines' chruch.
Next week Tuesday will be a big day for them and the community garden, they are going to be judged for London in Bloom. All our hard work in the winter months rain/snow makes them very proud to be a contender in London in Bloom. Unfortunately the judges will not get to see the array of colours we witnessed in spring when the Tulips and Daffodils were in bloom, however, Sue and Bill have taken photos of the flowers and plants throughout the various seasons and put them together in a nice briefing for the assessor.
When we arrived at St Augustines' Sue as always had a list of stuff for us to complete, clearing up the wood chips from the car park, cutting down a dead tree and cutting it up into small pieces for the shredder to be turned into wood chips for the flower beds. We did some weeding and sweeping of the car park for its important meeting next week.
