Once again it has been a very busy month with the lighter and longer evenings, showing an increase in the amount of litter and assorted mess we have been tidying up.
The fact that the bin men decided that they are no longer going to take our side rubbish (without them giving us any warning) caused us some problems. Hopefully, this should be solved when we receive a second bin.
Wayne and I enjoyed being part of the Hilton Archaeological dig and hope that our findings will go some way to falling in the gaps in Hilton’s history. So thank you for the opportunity.
As a team, we are now well into our grass cutting routes and I am very happy with the way everywhere is looking.
The wildflower beds that were seeded in the spring of 2012 have really come into maturation now and look brilliant.
I am having less favourable results with the later seedings that I did as a comparison in the other beds.
Main Street Car Park planting now has its summer bedding in and I think it looks colourful and tasteful.
Also the gaps in the planting by the garage have been replaced and can be seen and enjoyed by anyone who cares to walk by.
Other maintenance like weeding, watering, cutting back, spraying, etc… are also in full swing.
So with lots already done and even more still to do, thank you for your time.
