Crying cockles and mussels, Alive alive o!

If the weather is kind to us, on Saturday, 10 May between 11am and 1pm, we will be putting down cockle shells on top of the weed membrane in the Community Garden.  
We hope you will be able to join us.  You don't have to bend or lift heavy weights, there will be jobs for all.  
We might even have a sing-along to Molly Malone.  Or perhaps debate true meaning of the children's nursery rhyme...
Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.

...whatever the case, you are guaranteed some fresh air, a blether and the feelgood factor that comes from knowing you are helping your community.

Our choice of aggregate mulch reflects our fishing heritage as well as the eco credentials of the Friends of Cuthill Park (the shells are natural, unbleached by-produce of the UK shellfish industry).
