The violas in the barrier baskets grew well this month giving a welcome splash of colour during the grey days of November.
Weekly gardening sessions continued apace. Our thanks to Darren Widdop at the British Legion who donated a large number of spring bulbs some for use in the
Memorial Garden and others which our team have begun to plant in several of the small gardens around town including the Peace Garden and the area opposite Site Pizzeria.
Hopefully these will make a fine display of colour in the spring.
We were pleased to have a visit from Dr Alison Lewis from the British Fern Society this month, who came to offer advice regarding our plans to create a
fernery in a corner of the Patmos site. She was impressed by some of the fern specimens already growing in the town’s gardens.
Discussions continue regarding a new bench for the Patmos area.
We held our Annual General meeting this month; Jean Butterworth was re-elected as ‘chair’, and Sheila Greenwood as vice chair and Geoff Greenwood as
treasurer and vice chair. Other roles are shared amongst members of the team. The treasurer’s report was delivered and this showed our finances to be in a satisfactory state.
As usual members of our team took part in the ‘Kidsfest’ at the Town hall, with a stall for children and families to make and decorate winter garlands, using evergreens gathered from around the town. This was a lively and enjoyable event.
Members of the team met for our Christmas get together at the ‘Staff of Life’, where we enjoyed a very convivial evening.
Sunday morning work sessions continued and more spring bulbs were planted.
