The wildlife garden is developing well, and we’ve just added a new raised vegetable bed. In the first, we’re growing potatoes and raspberries; the second will be used by the anchor and junior sections. The compost we bought was kindly discounted by George Beckett nurseries. We’ve also cut a section or turf away to form a bed for wild flowers to grow, including wild flower seeds provided free by Kew Gardens and cosmos and poppy seeds from Brian’s garden. We’ve also placed our “certified wildlife garden” sign from the (American) National Wildlife Federation to show that the area is designed to attract as much wildlife as possible.

The seniors organised a special evening themed around fireworks, including, of course, sparklers.
We finished off our personalised t-shirts last week, and made some tasty pizza!
The seniors are busy soldering…. check back to see what they’ve been up to in a few weeks time….
To celebrate harvest the senior group prepared fresh apples and made some nice apple crumbles.
The band have been very busy over the Christmas period, playing in many different events and services throughout December. The picture shows Abi deputising for Simon and keeping everyone in time at Horton Heath.
