The Ladywell Fields Volunteer Day

The Ladywell Fields Users Group is a highly-effective group that has helped make all sorts of little improvements to the park in recent years. If you want to get involved, there is a great opportunity on Sunday 28 June 11.00am-2.00pm, when they will be holding a volunteer workday and open day at their orchards. Robert explains:

At the weekend our orchard leader had a good look at both these orchards.  Although both are coming on well, a lot of weeds have established around the trees.

So we’re organising a workday for 11.00am-2.00pm on Sunday 28 June.  We can do some pruning of plums and cherries, plus some weeding, watering and inspection for pests/disease.

If you are going to come along, please dress appropriately.  We have a limited supply of gloves so please bring your own and come wearing sturdy footwear and with your legs covered against the nettles, thistles and brambles that we’ll be tackling.  Please also bring your own refreshments, especially if it’s a hot day.

Please assemble 10.45-11.00am in the community orchard, close to the children’s play equipment in the south part (Bournville Road, Catford) end of Ladywell Fields.

Please come along - and if you intend to do so I'd be grateful if at all possible if you'd let me know so that I can guage numbers.
