When lockdown happened, we followed the Government Guidelines to the letter. From no work at all, to working in pairs then in groups of six , back to pairs and currently in groups of six again! We’re reclaiming our gardens from the ravages of lost time, weeds have been removed, plants and bulbs have been planted and Himalayan Balsam bashed!
Our long term volunteers (I daren’t say old) have been joined by new, willing recruits and the results are there for all to see. However, Mother Nature never stops and so we’re always looking for help.
Our bee and butterfly friendly plants across our gardens and the re-wilding area in Rawtenstall cemetery is helping the populations of both to thrive. Re-wilding is a key part of our strategy which benefits the environment and ultimately the community. It’s also great fun for those who don’t aspire to gardening (like me. Ed).
We’re no longer adding the Witterings to this page so please sign up using the box on the right and have them them delivered to your inbox every Sunday at 2pm.
We look forward to welcoming you to our happy band of Witter recipients!
