Monday February 27th 2017
This morning although weather forecast warned of showers Colin, Chris and I all turned up for volunteering work as usual…
I began by filling the bird feeders- soon Colin arrived to help + he also kindly retrieved a dropped jar of bird food plus a fallen bird box from the undergrowth…
When Chris arrived to join us he was asked to repair the handrail on the steps below the shed this was nailed back on plus he also used cement to refit a post under the rail
Colin meanwhile fitted 2 support posts to the copper beech tree on the grassy area between the 2 main paths-hopefully this will help to keep the tree growing more upright!
I took some shears to chop the ivy growing under the rowan tree we’d been working on last Monday-I also retrieved a football and 5 tennis balls which had come over a tall fence by the playground..
Time for our coffee break- taken under or new shelter there was a heavy rain shower which sheltered us from getting a soaking..
The nursery class children and staff came through the school wildlife area as usual whilst we were there-they were on their way to the seating up near the raised vegetable growing planters by the classrooms..
First 2017 snowflake and marsh marigold flowers + blooms on the flowering currant bush seen this morning..
Due to wet weather conditions we packed up early and left for our homes around 10.30 am!
