Our first work party at Purbrook Gardens was a great success with 14 volunteers including five residents of Purbrook Gardens giving up their Sunday morning to tidy this neglected area.
We concentrated on cutting back and digging out brambles and tidying the edge of the pavement. We also removed three bags of litter, a pair of brake disks, a child’s scooter and some bricks. The volume of material removed can be seen in the photo.
The larger branches, most of which had already been cut and left, were stacked at the back of the site to create a habitat for invertebrates.
