First a couple of photos of the raised bed the children were painting at the Fun Day last week. I love it! I checked out how the veg is doing. I don’t know whether someone or the birds have been sowing grass seed in the beds but I had to weed out a virtual… Read More Housekeeping

The day dawned cloudy but hopeful. I’m a bit of a panicker so was up early. Sandy, Joy and Elly are more laid back. The first thing to do was put up the Beach Hut name plaques which were long overdue for installation. We also put up a plaque on the Play Area pirate ship… Read More Fun Day morning
