Hello Shedders

There was good turn-out again last Wednesday – thanks to Julie and Paul for preparing the drinks and bacon rolls, which contributed to a great feeling of a welcoming and happy place to be.

Another hedgehog house was built by Bob. And we tidied up our stuff on the church hall stage to make room for some storage for the playgroup.

Then the away team set off for Breamore Primary School, where they got to work cutting back brambles and overgrown branches ready to mend the fence. We made good progress with ramming new posts in – after recent rain the ground was quite soft – and we got the whole fence back to vertical. Thanks to Wild Wood Table for the loan of a post rammer, and to the school for tea, coffee, doughnuts, and sausage rolls.


The really keen people went back to the school on the following day to finish the job with a few more new posts and rails.

On Wednesday this week we’ll have a more normal session at the church hall: members' own projects, plus birdboxes and hedgehog boxes.

This week’s meetings:

  • Social meeting at The Hyde Club, Tuesday 3pm to about 5pm
  • Workshop session at St. Mary’s Church Hall, Wednesday 9:30am to 12:30pm.
