Volunteer update and activities – September/October 2020

Thank you to everyone who joined us to litter pick in Beach Lawn Garden in September.  We had 20 volunteers, and split into smaller groups to litter pick in both Beach Lawn and Adelaide Garden plus another group for weed clearing. Special mention to Don and Anthea who have done a marvellous job this year of keeping the surface drains clear; also Richard and David who went further afield, armed with waders, to clear the nature boardwalk by the Marina.
We had 7 volunteer gardeners at our Tuesday gardening session, and 10 at the Wednesday session.  We have worked on the rockery at Marine Garden and several beds at Crescent Garden.
Sadly, following recent further restrictions put in place because of the Coronavirus crisis, we have now been advised by Sefton Council to once more cancel all our future activities in the gardens until further notice.  Volunteers are still able to go out as individuals, but groups activities are on hold. 
We hope you all keep safe and well, and that it won’t be too long before we’re able to resume our usual volunteering sessions.
Best wishes, 
Janet Markland
