Roger Tait suggested advertising for volunteers to try a taster – they can either come on a litter pick or gardening and no strings attached to see if they like it and want to come again.
ACTION CHRIS : Will try this on the website.
Sue & I updated the display board with photos. Sue & I also completed a photo history of the tidy group from its inception in 2001 to date in an album from Summer at the Centre on Aug 16th & 17th. Altho’ there was some interest, no new volunteers came forward as yet!
The Responders have a nice new leaflet – can we do something similar?
Andy Capewell has kindly volunteered to work on the leaflet.
Business cards left over from Summer at the Centre to be left at the Madeley Centre.
So far this year the group has done 118 hours not counting any hours recorded individually.
Chris, Anne, Phil & I met with Roger Tait from RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood on July 21st and took him on a tour of all the beds and troughs, including Madeley Heath. He was very impressed that so much was done by so few. There is a presentation on Wednesday, 17th September at Henley-in-Arden Golf and Country Club, to which we are invited. If no-one is able to attend, we will send apologies.
Alan, Phil, Chris & I sited the new planters under the ‘Welcome to Madeley’ signs and filled them with hard-core, top soil and soil improver.
New plants have been purchased using grant money and the planter at Smithy Corner is now fully planted.
As Terry had put some bedding plants ion the Bevan Place one, plants will be purchased when these die down.
Thanks once again to Liz Forster for her generous donation of perennials which have been planted in various locations.
The planter by the Madeley Tandoori is looking very colourful; thanks to Roy & Helen for maintaining it.
John & Lynda very kindly noticed that the Poolside Barrel was looking very forlorn and so purchased and planted some fuchsias; which look very attractive. Thanks also to John & Linda. There were a few perennials left over from The Smithy Corner planter and so they were added and the large heather from the barrel was removed and planted in the Izaak Walton Bed.
Rikki has been in touch with Fred Bailey’s niece, Jean, re replacement of his memorial tree and she has suggested a MALUS GOLDEN HORNET.
ACTION SUE: I will liaise with Elmside when I return from holiday.
Thanks to all who have been gardening this summer, both in the group and individually.
