A huge thank you for your wonderful donations for which we are so grateful. The latest donation has been chairs and a table for the Community Garden. Looks like it should be in Vogue! Our thanks to John and Joan at the The School House for their kindness and generosity.

Everything is growing well and we have had a water hose installed at the Community Hall to make the regular watering so much easier. If anyone could help us to water over the next few weeks we would be so so grateful. Come along and see what we are doing at anytime. Now our next task is  to source storage for outdoors and display shelves for our produce to share with everyone. Isn’t it wonderful!

Our small band of volunteers have achieved so much in such a short space of time. 
We have dug out the garden area at The Community Hall on Main Street, and have started to sow and grow at the allotment. The Church Grounds of St. Giles has also benefited from a Twig and Stick Collection where we were joined by Joe, Harriet and Matthew Gibson. 
However our plans are vast and we need more volunteers to help us do this. If you can spend an hour or two weekly or fortnightly to be outdoors carrying out one of our many tasks we want to hear from you. Not all the tasks are digging and bending.
It goes without saying that we have been overwhelmed by the generosity and advice that many of you in the Community have proffered. A huge thankyou to you all.

Well we have started to dig out the Community Garden and plant asparagus and potatoes in the allotment. A very big thank you to the very generous people who have given their time to dig and those who have donated so much to date. You are wonderful.

However we still need people to join our happy band of amateurs in whatever way you feel you would like to. If you feel you do not want to be part of the group but would still like to help then one way is to visit our Churchyard and clear away some of the sticks and branches that have fallen from the trees. In 30 minutes a lot of wood can be collected and the peacefulness of the Churchyard will really improve your well being. It’s surprising who you may meet there too.

We urgently need topsoil of some kind, not a lot, probably about 8 wheel barrow loads. Can anyone help us with this? We need herbs to plant and lavender. Garden canes, tomato compost, in fact anything would be so greatly appreciated.

Once again I would love to hear from you if there is any way you can contribute to our community digging. Thank you.
