A few pictures from our wonderful day on Saturday. More to follow as they come through!
Courtesy of Cluttons, we feasted on delicious eats and drank a wonderful fruit concoction, played some fun summer games and our children went home with bright blue party bags! Many thanks to everyone at Cluttons, but especially Katie, who did so much to make it all happen.
Thanks too to Martin Klute, St Peter’s Ward Councillor, and to Bunhill Councillor and lead for the Environment at the Council, Claudia Webbe for giving up their afternoons to be with us. Both Councillors were hugely impressed with the difference we are making in the Gardens and with our partnership approach to keeping the Gardens looking lovely for everyone to enjoy. Claudia Webbe has committed to helping us sort out a solution for the grassed area in Duncan Terrace Gardens, so we hope to see some progress on that over the late Autumn-Winter months.
It was great to be able to welcome Ben Robinson, the newly-appointed community volunteering coordinator at City University. Ben has already given up his time to help us personally in the Gardens, as well as organising a stream of wonderful student volunteers.
A huge thank you again to everyone who so generously gave their help on the day, to those who worked behind the scenes beforehand, and to those who came and really made the afternoon such a success. Final thanks to all our wonderful volunteers and Greenspace who support the Gardens throughout the year. We will let you know over the next few days what we raised to go towards planting in the two Gardens.
