Our thanks go to the great team of Co-operative store managers who came & helped, to the six LDS missionaries who also lent a hand enthusiastically, and to East Lothian Council who willingly & cheerfully supplied bark & soil.
To begin with it looked like this:
We managed to strim & then lay ground cover fabric (again - the previous lot having mysteriously disappeared...)
The container was painted. (Thank you sister missionaries :) )
The council were super-helpful, delivering soil & bark, which kept some of us busy.
Bark was laid on the paths & around the edges.
Raised vegetable beds were built ...
... And the filling of them was begun.
And much weeding was accomplished.
Gerry, our very own Co-op manager :)
All in sunshine & warmth!
Thank you to everyone who came & helped - it is looking fabulous!
And we have a CCTV camera in place now too :)
