On wednesday there were eight volunteers out being johns 1 2 & 3 badr pete cath graham & paddy. We started by preparing the kerb stones on the golf club roundabout sealing them ready for spraying with light reflecting paint (too windy to spray) hopefully this will stop tired and emotional drivers from hitting the trees! Then we went on to water all the new roses recently planted along the dual carriageway and lumbreras , we had two less to water as some one needed them for there own use these will be replaced. A pallet of kerb stones were picked up and placed a the bottom of dual carriage way to hold back the new gravel being delivered next week , then every one spent some time pulling out a huge amount of weeds.
cath & paddy stood on a very windy and chilly roadside with the buckets collecting 240.83 thanks to all who donated and cath for breakfast.
