Scything in the Sun
8 volunteers turned up at West Beckham Old Allotments this morning – the best day of the week by far, with the sun almost leading to Poldark moments as the morning wore on. Fortunately for all, shirts remained on.
A couple of us learned a bit more about scything (thank you, John!) and 6 people scythed and raked up the scythings along the pathways on the east side of the site; while 2 volunteers worked hard clearing the butterfly bank by the pond.
A very good morning, helped along by breaks for coffee and doughnuts. The next work party will be in Sustead on Friday October 22nd, starting at 9.00 a.m.
