War Memorial Compost Day — Sat 17th Feb @ From 10.30am
CRiB -- Curry Rivel in Bloom need your help.
Please come armed with spades , forks, wellies , wheel barrows, gloves,buckets etc. There is a need to improve the soil in the garden before permanent planting can begin in the spring .
CRiB Chair Gina Beauchamp Writes
just sending out a reminder about Saturday, the weather looks good, so hopefully we will have a good turn out.
There will be a small amount of weeding to do to start with.
We have some donated horse manure, chicken compost and leaf mould. There is a huge supply of really good quality compost at Wiltown Place on the corner of Stoney Lane, but we will need wheel barrows, bags or buckets and a car to go and collect it, we have to dig it out our selves.
We had a donation to buy some soil improver, so I will bring that. I will be at the war memorial from 10.30am and will provide food, bacon baps or hot dogs / tea / coffee water from 11.30am onwards.
The idea is to spread around what compost we have and lightly fork it in but no deep digging, we can let the weather break it down for the next six weeks and also add more compost to it as and when we get it. March is going to bring rather cold weather.
The parish council have approved the water stand pipe for the war memorial but that won't be finished until the end of March at least. So we won't be planting the permanent garden till at least the beginning of April, weather and water supply permitting.
