Sunday is ADAS planting day

Last Sunday saw ADAS volunteers finishing the rip-out of Summer bedding. We finished in (probably) record time due to the large turn-out, which was much appreciated given the wetness of the day -- even with the wetness smiling faces were spotted.

Call out for planting this weekend is Sunday 20 Oct at 0930hrs -- meet in the Lord Combermere car-park with trowels, trugs and wheelbarrows to hand. Coffee and chocolate will be provided at half-time ... oops, still in RWC mode there.
