Many, many thanks to James Dunn, Scout leader, 1st Woosehill Scouts and eight members of his troop for the sterling work they did in spreading well over 50 wheelbarrow loads of woodchip among the plants by Superbowl.
They were guided, and ably assisted, by Ann Crail from Rose Street Gardeners, Wokingham Methodist Church and Jenny Gilbert from Wokingham Horticultural Association.
There were a few blisters at the end of the operation but a great deal was accomplished. on Saturday 31st May.
The wood chip has been donated by Arborfield Tree Care, Gardeneer, Gristman Tree Surgeons and Scottscape. Many thanks to all of them for their time and trouble.
If you find yourself nearby do look out for the bee boxes Gerry Higson has put on the wall. The recently installed information board highlights the wildlife we hope to attract.
The Scouts are turning their attention to constructing a bug hibernation tower at Gipsy Lane community orchard in the near future, in conjunction with members of the orchard group.
Many thanks to everyone involved with both projects from the Wokingham in Bloom steering group.
