Planting Up Whickham
On Sunday last week, the volunteers of Planting Up Whickham, of which I am one, set to work on preparing the flower beds on Church Green for a new set of bedding plants. I brought 9 sacks of manure, kindly donated by my livestock, to dig into the beds. All the old flowers were removed. Today, the volunteers returned to plant the flowers. Sadly, I wasn't able to take part. A friend of mine was staying for the weekend (he is a Labour councillors from London!) so we agreed to spend this weekend visiting places of interest (Chesters Roman Fort and Beamish Museum). I therefore don't know how they got on. Tomorrow I need to be in the village so I will be able to have a look at their work.
