Everybody's at it:
The SVA's Woodlands & Estates volunteers were out in force this morning in the Byes
Sid Vale Association - Woodlands and Estates
And on Saturday, the Friends of the Byes were at the other end. There'll be another session this Wednesday:
Saturday morning started off with a
large thunder storm over Sidmouth, but by 10am it had cleared up and there were
even some glimpses of sunshine. Just in time to get the first batch of bulbs
We managed to plant about 840 bulbs,
even with several volunteers in their more tender years. Maybe because of the
earlier rain we were short of volunteers, but luckily numbers were boosted with
the help of two EDDC gardeners.
Thanks to all those that did manage to
come along and help with this first session. We are all looking forward to
seeing the extra splash of colour these bulbs will bring to The Byes during next
We could really do with more
volunteers to spare a couple of hours this Wednesday 2nd October between 1:30pm
and 3:30pm when we will be planting another batch of bulbs. Please do come along
and join in and bring a friend. It really is easy work, especially with us all
doing a little bit.
Attached is a planting guide prepared
by Sid Vale Association, so please have a read.
Meeting point will again be at the Old
Toll House entrance to the Byes on Salcombe Road.
