Fairy Tales

When I was a little girl I believed in fairies
I believed they weren't just
At the bottom of our garden.
They were all around me
Being my friends.
I could not see them
I could not hear them
But I know they were with me
Always somewhere.
I even had names for my Friday "Friends"
Sunbeam, Rainbow, Silver Wings, Gliiter Shirley, Maybelle, Daisy and Trixie!
Now I have a real family of friends
Grown up friends, of course!
Because I am an OAP
These friends of mine
Keep me bright and cheerful.
We forget we are old,
Forget to moan because
We are looked after
Cared for and listened to
By the ADCA team
Happy days

The last few weeks have been quite busy as regards activity and plans for the field. Volunteers have just cut the hedge back on the corner of Green Lane, however there is still some attention required alongside the footpath- hopefully this should be sorted soon. Also, last Saturday, Jonathan Gleave in his tractor flailed the Himalayan balsam whilst a working party of ADAS and AWEG volunteers...
