The first Saturday of every month is when our local volunteers come out and go weed picking and 'dead heading'. Last Saturday was no exception and despite it being raining heavily all week, we were greeted by a lovely sunny morning.
So we proceeded to reign in the lavender who had sprouted in an all too unruly fashion, the roses and bushes were pruned back so that the remainder could grow faster.
Paul from YogaMatters brought fresh cups of tea, we caught up on the latest chat and banter, got a bit of exercise, and the garden has been looked after. Not a bad start to the weekend!
If you would like to join us, just pop along on the first Saturday of every month at 10am on the corner Hornsey Park Road/Clarendon Road.
Life on Hornsey Park Road has been plagued with problems including noise, pollution and crumbling pavements, on top of this there appears to be a lack of strategic vision for the future. Council Leader Peray Ahmet and a few of her fellow councillors came to discuss the issues with our representatives.
Eight of us got out before the rain last Saturday. We cut back a lot of growth at the Lavender Garden ready for winter. Most of what we cleared has now gone down for composting. By John Miles
