Leaves, leaves & yet more leaves

Wednesday 28th November 2012

There was a bit of a chill in the air today, 4o C and the ground was soaking after several days of rain, but the sun was shining! Normal Wednesday service has been resumed.

A large group of volunteers were given the task of leaf clearing from The Avenue. Many of the fallen leaves had already been cleared by contractors and our task was to rake up the leaves on the bank and from around the bases of trees where the leaf clearing machinery hadn’t been able to reach.
Raking Leaves

Leaves were raked down the bank into large piles where they could be collected up and taken off by truck to be recycled into leaf mould in another part of the estate.

It was such a sunny day, that despite the chill, we managed to have lunch outside in the Walled Garden.
