No, it wasn't you I'd forgotten about, Barbara, it was the name of one of the refugee gardeners. Sorry you couldn't make it to the gathering and great to hear about your growing successes. Maggie

Hi Maggie, not sure if it was me that you forgot the name of, I have the raised bed in the playground, the one closest to the big slide side. We grew cherry tomatoes this summer and managed to get a lot!! Will plant some herbs for the winter then more tomatoes next year!

Thanks to everyone involved yesterday for their energy and good humour. Sorry about those of you would couldn't make it... You missed out on an enjoyable event. 

A few changes to tell you about - please tell me if I'm wrong about any as I'm not sure I quite remember! Rawa is taking new bed 4 and the Kalafat family staying with new bed 2 - buddies for both are Helen and Daniel. Helene is buddy for someone whose name I've forgotten (can you remind me, Helene?)  but who is coming along and they are staying on new bed 1. Kirsty is moving from her raised bed in the children's playground area to new bed 3, as she mostly can't get to her current bed with the playground closing so early. Julienne has given up her bed and we have a new member from Algeria, Menad, who is taking over her space. Beds 5 and 6 (Maggie and Fausto buddies) are currently unallocated, as is the raised bed Kirsty has given up, and I will be in touch again with Salusbury World in the spring to see if there are new people interested in taking them on.

All best, Maggie

Nice day. We're in luck!

Bringing mulled wine. Maybe some of you want to bring something to eat around lunchtime? 

Look forward to see y'all. I'll be there from 12.00

Mick says he is getting two bags of wood chip up there, so we will see...

Hi everyone, sorry I don’t be able to join on Sunday the 5th as I am abroad that week. Have a good time, Barbara.

Hi there! A good number of people can make the cleanup on Sunday 5th November and only one on the Saturday, so Sunday is definitely the day (sorry Kim!).

I'm suggesting 12.00 to 3.00 for the timing. Hope that's OK with everyone but let me know if not, as I'm pretty free that day.

Can those of you who haven't replied take a minute to post a message please - either yes or no? 

Thanks, Maggie

Great that a good few of you can come on Sunday. We will have a nice gathering and a good clear up. I am asking Mick for some wood chip so that we can tidy up the paths.

Can the people who haven't replied please do so! I'm happy to be there on both the 4th and the 5th, although so far only Kim has opted for the 4th. 

Thanks, Maggie
