Bricks and blocks – garden improvements
Whilst we have been closed, we have made some improvements in our garden area including a brick block paved area and installing some more woven fence panels.
We reused old bricks to fit in with the rest of the garden, and we also needed quite a lot of sand and gravel!
The volunteer work was led by John Homer and we are grateful for him for donating his time and expertise to the project. Although weather wasn’t the greatest we did have a few moments of sun. Throughout, our volunteers worked really hard to get the area completed and we are hoping the weather will repay us with sunshine when we are ready for Open Days!
We’re so pleased to have been able to give these old bricks a new lease of life and to have an additional area in the garden for displays.
It wasn’t all just bricks and blocks, we also spent some time tending to the garden which needed a little post-winter care, as all gardens do. It’s a wonderful place to spend some time, and always hard to believe that it is so close to the city centre.
We have regular gardening days for volunteers and welcome new recruits. It doesn’t need to be a regular commitment – if you would like to find out more about working in our garden, or you have other skills you would like to volunteer, please see our Volunteering page.
