After being taken by surprise by a few early morning showers, the sun did emerge and made for some pleasant working conditions at the Haymaking work party last Saturday, 17th August.

A massive thank you to the really hard working team of six volunteers who between them cut and cleared the whole field!

Thank you also to Cuttlebrook NR for lending us their power scythe — invaluable help!

Nice to see the compost area full to the brim — thanks again to those who donated pallets to build it earlier this year.

Keep an eye on the Events section of this website to find details of further activities and work party invitations in the coming months.
