Queens Award for Voluntary Service

Volunteering Saturday 12th December

Here’s what we did:

The weather forecast for heavy and persistent rain proved to be correct but nevertheless 5 volunteers gathered for the Monthly Saturday session.

We cleared leaves:

  • From the shed roof to protect the sedum which is doing really well.
  • From the area around the shed
  • From the track between Sunnyside Lane and the Orchard.

The bund around Alder Pond was strengthened with sods to stop the water overflowing and encourage it to go down the drain.
The hedge between the Orchard and Orchard House was tidied after an Associate Volunteer had one good work pruning the hedge and clearing the area.
Orienteering post number 5 was restored to its proper position.
The holly obstructing access to the south notice board in the Orchard was cut back.

We called it a day at 11.30.
