It was a record turn out at our gardening day yesterday, fueled by bacon sandwiches, chocolate cake and scones, the volunteers made a big impression on the grounds. We managed to finish the fencing around the bouldering wall, clean the camp fire area, fill a skip with rubbish, plant lots of beautiful flowers, put down the wood chip and concrete in posts for the new fencing beside the poly tunnel. Brilliant effort everyone!
