plant swap and picnic


This was another successful event, with a stream of plants carried in and out by happy tenants, new and old.

Thanks to Noel Perkins for organising the event, Margy Perkins and others for the tasty array of snacks on offer, and Andy Freeman for the constant supply of tea and coffee, and offerings from his family barbecue.

This is the second year the event has been held, and is now a much-anticipated annual event.

Alan Pordage and family have cleared the stream by plot 14A, utilising the new facility to compost the bullrushes close by.  This extends the section of stream opened up by Noel Perkins last year.

The committee have thanked the family on behalf of the membership for this welcome contribution to solving a long term problem.  Medway River Board advisers to Swale have been unable to suggest any other alternative to the hard slog of cutting and lifting the reeds from this isolated waterway.

It is hoped to clear the two remaining sections at each end of this waterway later in the year, to restore the active flow.
