Working party for the bees

Having had overwhelming support at the AGM, for which we want to thank all you enthusiastic plotholders, we can’t wait to get going with building an apiary at Court Lane Allotments. We are proposing to make a start on the fencing this Easter weekend, so if anyone wants to help out, please turn up. Sunday and Monday are the most likely days (weather permitting), but keep an eye out for people working in the Community Orchard area anytime this weekend. Please pitch in. The more the merrier!

Working Party

The last two Sundays has been spent planting hawthorn and blackthorn hedges around the perimeter fence of the plots. Lots of people from the allotments volunteered their energy and sacrificed time away from their own plots to help with this and also helped with tidying up the community garden.

There was a real sense of cooperation and the good weather added to a real convivial and sharing atmosphere. This was helped by lovely prepared lunches and a few a beers!

There is a set of photos on our flick site and a few of them appear below.  Here is the set as a slideshow.
