You may have observed much yellow-jacket activity in the village recently -- we know how to have fun!
We have, once again, cut back grass verges at Windmill Drive and Broadways and regained the footpaths full width. Last night, we removed grass cuttings left on the verges by Cheshire East cutters, we then re-cut the grass to an even level -- our overtime rate was amazing £0 per hour, our delightful boss tells us we may get a pay rise to £00 per hour.
Two volunteers spent the evening on hands and knees washing the Monument. A couple of others were sweeping the gravel, yes you heard right, by the charity shop, one said, 'my dad said if I didn't study, I'd end up sweeping the roads.'
The path leading up alongside Turnpike Field, from the canal bridge to Green Lane junction (we know because Billy's sign informed us) was again given the ADAS treatment, thus making the path a two-person walkway rather than just space for one person. Safer for pushchairs.
This morning, our leader was spotted out sweeping the pine needles from the path opposite the Scout Hall -- and I'm now off to pretty up Tollgate with more alpine plants.
My favourite picture out of these must surely be the 'bums' having a rest, which they called surveying the next job.
We've had many comments of how lovely the village looks and how much they appreciate it. That means so much to all of us. So, a big THANK YOU to all of our invaluable volunteers for lightening the load and making this work such fun.
And then, we go to the pub -- you may have seen us
editors comment:- well done ADAS! Pay rise much deserved – I trust it's backdated! Apparently this was for the Britain in Bloom Judges – which has had to be delayed
