Lastest Post - The Village Green
July 22, 2016

You may have noticed activity on the Village Green over the last few weeks as work continued in renovating the bank area opposite the Royal Oak.

Many tonnes of top soil arrived, all of which had to be wheel barrowed from the car park by the War Memorial to the far end of the green and then be offloaded and spread.

 

 

 

 

 

Many hands make light work, but it was still hot and heavy work!

A few days later more top soil and turves arrived all of which had to be moved once again by individual barrow, the top soil spread and the turves laid.

All in all it made for very thirsty work!!

After all this work and with the additional planting, seeds being sown and with the old Rhododendrons showing some healthy new shoots,  the green is looking in good shape.

The only challenge now is to keep the new grass watered well!! Feel free when you’re passing to use the buckets available for a little watering, all help is gratefully received.

So many thanks to everyone who has contributed with their ideas, plants and manpower to make the Village Green an area we can all be proud of.
