Below is some pictures taken at the Riverside at the end of September.
Here we were helped by Chris's Garden Maintenance and his team as well as local volunteers.
The work involved repairing paths that were uneven, mainly due to Moles and flood damage.
We were succesful in obtaining a small grant for us to be able to repair the paths, from the FALLAGO ENVIRONMENT FUND COVID-19 Recovery Footpath Repair Grant Programme 2021.
The November Clean Up.
Thanks for all the helpers, we accomplished quite a lot. Some dead trees replaced, Some new shrubs planted,Hedges and fruit trees pruned but most importantly for the children a 'Willow Den' was created, see pictures below.
Many thanks to all the people that attended the Duck Race and all the people that helped out on the day. Special thanks to Reston provisions for selling the ducks leading up to the race and special thanks to the Cedar Cafe for the kind donation of the Burgers and Buns.
