Last Sunday nearly forty locals gathered at Chapelhay Community
Playgarden for the group’s monthly workday. With twenty lavendar and
other shrubs donated by Helen of Helen’s Famous Wholefoods, a crabapple
donated by local gardener Lexi and lots of tomato, chilli and vegetable
plants grown by the group, there was lots of work to do. Chair of the
Playgarden Clare Sutton said:

“It was great to have so many people turn up and help. We hope that the
better care we take of the Playgarden the more local people will want to
use and take care of it, and it is looking great at the moment.”

Rosa, aged 7, added, “It’s fun to come and play with your friends and
maybe grow some plants too. We made loads of chips out of our potatoes
last year.”

The group gets together at the Playgarden on the first Sunday of the
month, 11.30-12.30, to do odd jobs and grow vegetables with the children
– the Let’s Grow! Project. On July 4th the group will be holding its
summer event, The Big Picnic 11.30-1.30. There will be lots of fun
activities, and hopefully a bouncy castle, for all the family. For
further details, ring Clare on 771180
