What a wet day! Our sensible volunteers – Annette and Gill – cosseted themselves in a cosy cafe to finalise the Christmas video that was filmed last week. The rest of us worked through almost constant rain in and around the Buried Lock site. Apologies for the poor quality of some of the photos, due to drizzle on the lens!

The wall around Martin’s garden was extended several metres. Gareth the Elder mixed the mix and Sue and Alan laid the stones. Excellent work, given the conditions.

Pete moved huge piles of leaves into the newly constructed compost bin. This will provide much needed nourishment for the garden in due course.


Bob, John and Martin retrieved the last of the shelving from the sheds.

Time for a socially distanced cuppa.


Our crack team of litter-pickers, John and Mike, was on duty as usual.

Martin was able to complete a few tasks in the garden, including planting daffodils that he had received as a most welcome gift.

But the best part of the day was a visit from Dom, who is recovering well from a series of major health problems. He says he will soon be back in harness, once he stops glowing in the dark!


So, a miserable day but we still managed to achieve a great deal. Here’s hoping for better weather next week.
