On Monday the Team cleaned and weeded on C1 with Calles Arjona, Alcaudette, Ibiscum and Azaleas being done along with the petanque court which was cleared of weeds. The area next to the lower petanque court was sprayed with weed killer.
The green garden waste bin has been replaced by 3 skips … no building waste, furniture, etc should be placed in these
Yet another of the red street signs has been stolen! … “Calle Azaleas” from the corner of Calle Azaleas and Calle Alcaudete
Two more residents joined the maintenance scheme this week
A new resident contacted the Team with an offer of some stone garden furniture
Wednesday found 10 volunteers out. We had an early delivery, 08:00am, of gravel which saw John, John2, Badr and myself very busy straight away! – 7 tonnes were spread on the new bed leading up to where the skips are located and 4 tonnes near the lower petanque court
John and I then went to see the resident who had made the offer of some stone garden furniture … to find most of the items located on the villa roof terrace. A couple of phone calls and arrangements were made for the driver who had delivered our gravel to come use the crane lift to remove the items – a table, 4 stools, a fountain and 5 planters. Many thanks to the resident for such a generous donation
John2, Badr and I concentrated on the removal and relocation of these – the table and stools to the lower petanque court area; the fountain and planters to the lower dual carriageway area
Meanwhile John went to meet with Paco from the garden centre at Bolnuevo to discuss plants, etc
Ken, Paul (welcome back), Graham and Paddy concentrated on watering all of the plants, trees, etc … an essential task and a one which takes a long time … Cath started on the bucket and then went on to weeding and tidying the waste bin’s, etc
Once again Wendy did an excellent job on the bucket raising 260.93€ … thanks to all who donated and to Cath & Suzie for the breakfasts
… and special thanks to all the volunteers today on what was a very busy day!
