Friends of Flixton Gardens
Topic posted by Dogsbody ... dated:17 July 2017
Friends of Flixton Gardens are appealing for more volunteers to help out at the gardens to maintain this lovely, quiet oasis for everyone to enjoy.  A little of your time on a regular basis, Saturdays or Wednesdays, would be fantastic and much appreciated.  Just turn up and you will be welcomed.

More damage done at Flixton Gardens by the local morons.   Rubbish discarded in the pond and other places, plants broken again, pot fairy houses all smashed, wine bottles smashed and thrown around and fences broken.  The volunteers work so hard to make these gardens so lovely for us all to enjoy and our younger visitors particularly love trying to find all the little 'hidden' fairy doors, knitted animals and pompons.

Some moron has chopped the Winston Churchill Oak tree down at the gardens. Pathetic individual. It will be replaced, these people will not win and will get caught eventually.

Divad, at present we are trying to eradicate the bindweed which is choking some of the lovely plants in the large herbaceous border and plenty of general weeding to be done, as well as sweeping paths.  For the  bindweed and weeding just bring a pair of gardening gloves, and a rake and hoe if you wish to.  Weeds are a problem at this time of the year but we are doing our best.   Volunteers will be  there this evening from 6.30 if anyone wishes to come down to help.

It might be better if it was explained as to what is needed. I am too old for this kind of manual labour but others may wonder how they can help or in what way.
