Volunteer update and Activities: November 2023

Thank you to all who came along to help in the Waterloo Seafront Gardens during October.

We had 10 volunteers at our Litter Pick in Potter’s Barn, where we also cleaned out and set the fountain running and weeded the raised bed and rose bed.  We’re pleased to see that the new “Waterloo Roses”, purchased with donations made after a Facebook post last year, are growing well and some were still flowering!

We had 14 volunteers at our three regular monthly gardening sessions when we continued to work on the raised central bed in Crescent Garden – weeding and mulching with bark chippings.  The middle of the bed still needs a fair amount of work, but we may leave that until we prune back the vicious Rosa Rugosa in the spring!

Our volunteers sessions during November will take place on:

Saturday 11th Nov – Litter Picking in Marine Garden – meeting at 10.30am.
Tuesday 14th Nov – Gardening – meeting at 9.30am outside Waterloo Sunset café.
Sunday 19th Nov – Gardening – meeting at 2.00pm outside Waterloo Sunset café.
Wednesday 22nd Nov – Gardening – meeting at 1.00pm outside Waterloo Sunset café.

All equipment will be provided as well as hot drinks and chocolate biscuits!

We will be holding our 6th Annual General Meeting of Friends of Waterloo Seafront Gardens Charity on Thursday, 23 November 2023 starting at 7.30pm at The Victoria Public House, Bath Street, Waterloo.
