Derek has left us for six months, he and his wife are having an extended O/E and his energy will be missed. It is so astounding what a differnce one more pair of arms makes to the ongoing work we do,
Our group was directed to move all the drying branches under the stadium stairs, so Sel and Roy came along last week and we all cleaned up the area. Contributing to the college as volunteer grounds people. This waste came from the tree that fell over the bank last year which we cleaned up for the college at no cost. We were instructed to stack the sawn up wood neatly by the rubbish bins so those who wanted the wood for free could take it. Shame they could not come and help with the cutting and stacking.
There is a constant water overflow in that area and Sel dug channels to take the water down the bank. Weeds were raked and put into weed bags. Next week when the area has dried out we will be spreading mulch over the whole space to provide a uniform appearance.
