    9:30 amCANAL BY TOWN LOCK BRIDGE

    BLOOMING BUDDIES will be meeting on MONDAY 1ST APRIL.......09:30 - 11:00........CANAL BY TOWN LOCK BRIDGE

    You may have noticed that the old gas pipe has been removed from the bridge at Town Lock, near where we look after the hellebore bed.

    Money has been allocated by T&W for plants to go into 2 small areas beside the bridge on both sides of the canal so we have an opportunity to make this area more attractive. The hidden catch is that the ground needs preparing, but after 4 years at Wrekin Avenue Play Area we are well used to that!

    Monday's session will include:
    - Heavy digging, removing ivy and roots.
    - Weeding ground elder, nettles and goose grass along
    front of the hedge.

    Looking forward to seeing you there!

    9:30 amWrekin Avenue Play Area.

    Looking at the calendar, I see that Mon 6th May is a Bank Holiday but I am hoping that the exciting list of jobs we are going to do will tempt some of you to spend part of your morning at Wrekin Avenue.

    ·         Making a stepping stone path through the corner bed where the 2 new Rowan trees were planted last year.

    ·         Moving Sedum Angelina into the corner bed.

    ·         Using 3” cubes to edge the bed at the entrance to  the first Ford Road alleyway.

    ·         Building a dog deterrent rockery.

    ·         Finish the heavy digging needed to complete the corner by school playing field.

    ·         Sawing down ivy trunks and a stump in the old hedge border.

    ·         Digging out a Skimmia and Weigela from 63 Boughey Road and replanting them at Wrekin Avenue.

    ·         Dead heading daffodils and weeding .

    Something for everyone there, so hope some are free to come along,

    We all have a very busy NIB weekend ahead of us which we are hoping to follow with a productive morning at Hawkstone Avenue to prepare it for judging day.

    A resident from Stretton Avenue has done a superb job straightening up the edges of the central path leading up to the new raised bed. On Monday we will be working along the edges of the side paths so spades, shears and brooms please. There will also be some weeding to be done.

    Something for everyone - so hope some of you are free to come along,

    Looking forward to seeing you there!
