Crib War Memorial Compost Day 1

"Do not spread the compost on the weeds." — William Shakespeare, Hamlet

CRiB volunteers turned up on Saturday 17th Feb to spread compost on the War Memorial. Their fantastic efforts should help ensure that the War Memorial planting will look great, not just for the South West in Bloom competition (for which 'we' won the City of Bath cup for the best landscape design in 2017) , but more importantly the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
They did follow the Bard's advice and weeded before spreading compost.....

Many thanks to those who turned up, donated compost, got the compost and spread it.

  • Next CRiB Meeting Tues 27th Feb Village Hall at 7.30pm, where the War Memorial Planting will be the main subject of discussion
