Three posts in one day? Only because we wanted to share the pictures taken today by another of our team when she was down at the Quay doing her own Friday Tidy there.
Apparently there are very few sunflowers this year, but lots of poppies and alpine strawberries, as well as the fruit trees and bushes. All of the rain we’ve had has not stopped the soil turning to dust now that the sun is out, but it’s all still looking good.
Thank you to everyone who managed to tear themselves away from the buzz at St Peter’s and came over to say hello at the Town Hall – and a very warm welcome to all those who picked up a card, and are visiting our blog for the first time.
St Peter’s 2 March 2019
We are a small group who aim to make Sudbury greener, using sustainable planting in areas that have been slightly neglected in the past. If you scroll down (or perhaps go to the beginning of the blog and work your way forwards) you will see a little bit more about the sorts of things we’ve been doing over the past five years. You will also find information there about other groups and individuals around town who are trying to make a difference by planting up forgotten corners or picking up litter.
We meet on the first Friday of the month at one of our sites in town. By clicking on the ‘follow’ button (near the bottom on the right) you will receive the blog post by email, letting you know where to meet, and about any other events we think might interest you. We will not bombard you with emails (usually only one a month) and we never share your information with anyone else. Of course, you can also just check in every so often to see what we’re doing.
Quay Theatre tidy-up
At our last Friday Tidy we were heartened to see that the buds are coming out on the fruit bushes and trees at the Quay car park garden – they have all survived!
Our next task is to clear the wildflower bed at the Kingfisher car park, and refill with even more nectar-rich plants – pollinators need our help!
…they just log in.*
This morning was spent putting the last few log ‘steps’ in at the Quay, to make a path through the garden. The earth is as dry as dust, but we’re still trying to do only essential watering.
Lovely to see the Towpath Team (who work on the Quay seating area) this morning, having tea and Jaffa cakes in the sunshine – they’d already been there for an hour or two when we arrived, trying to avoid the intense heat of the day.
Enjoy the weather this weekend – but we won’t tell anyone if you decide that you want to join us in a tiny little rain dance at some point or other!
*Apologies for the joke. It was a bit wooden. I blame the internet.
