See the Blog for the full detail of the tearoom project.
The continuing muddy area just inside the gate was being caused by rainwater building up in the roadway outside, then flowing across the path and under the gate. The newly installed dished channel and gully will divert that water into a soak-away, which has been created nearby. See the photos page to get a proper understanding of the size of the project.
A significant amount of non compostable waste was disposed of on the day. Many thanks to Jamie and Ingrid who dragged several builder's bags of site waste around to the Burn Bin, and also to Tom and James who helped out with the loading. The session worked very well because everyone brought the right stuff to be burnt and kept a good social distance.
There are two large insect-mesh cloches in the car park that had been blown into the orchard. Please check that nothing on your plot has been damaged or gone missing. Remember that items in communal areas, or on plots that are vacant or look vacant, are not to be removed - see site rule No 13.
