Priorities for this work party is to continue to collect cuttings and move them to the current bonfire site ready for the November bonfire, the new nettle growth on our planting sites and beside the paths needs attention, plus the holes on the green. Plenty to keep us busy, so bring those hand tools and your elevenses.
