HEDGE MAINTENANCE ON SUNDAY 18TH APRIL 10-12AM
At last we have been able to set up the first of the monthly hedge maintenance sessions since lockdown! Please do come along this Sunday. We’ll be clearing the path running alongside the hedge, weeding around the hedge, and picking up litter. Come and join us to take part, or have a chat about what we are doing. Wear sturdy shoes and long sleeves and bring gloves, secateurs, shears and a trowel if you have them, although we will come with some equipment.
We will be following Covid guidelines. We will work in groups of 6, maintain social distances, and ask everyone to bring their own refreshments to have at about 11am.
The hedge is between Priestnall allotments and the recreation field, on the lane that links Trentham Avenue (SK4 3QD) and Mersey Road. All welcome.
