After rain overnight alas ground quite wet so we worked mainly from paths this morning..
I arrived first as usual and began by watering the planters and pots at the front of school which were rather dry even though we’d had recent rain!
When Rose arrived to help I went to the wildlife area to collect the wheelbarrow, garden bags, gloves and tools..
Rose worked on the beds at the front of school whilst I went off to prune the buddleijas and weed in the nursery outdoor play area..
Still lots more weeding & pruning to be done in these areas however at 11am we returned to the wildlife area for our coffee break and catch up..
Next we took 2 wheelbarrow loads of prunings etc down to compost in the copse by the wildlife pond..
Rose also dragged 2 lots of large branches -cut off by the caretaker since last week and left by the wildlife area gate-these were added to the woodpile in the copse!
Caretaker also offered us a wooden pallet-took it out of the skip then left it for me to struggle to take it to the wildlife area!
Finally after a little more pruning near our shed and in the playground we packed up and left for our homes…
NB I will re fill the bird feeders on Monday ie at our next IWAP volunteers work session!
