Almost 8 weeks with no rain and high temperatures and some emergency top-up watering sessions were needed on our larger planted areas. As the evening temperatures cooled down, a Magnificent 7 committee members set out with watering equipment and in two hours delivered over 800 litres onto the Wavy Bed, Swan, Station Roundabout, and the Dinosaur Paddocks.
A big shout out to the lads ( doing GCSEs at the mo), who saw Ali and Barbara flagging, carrying 4 full watering cans down Manchester Road and asked if they could help. They took the cans and finished off watering the plants by the Dinosaurs. Faith restored…. Chivalry is not dead and big thanks to those young men. Any time you’d like to help let us know.!
A second watering session was needed on Sunday at the Sensory Garden which was beginning to look parched and the Sea Defences borders in Alexandra Terrace.
Update: Rather like when you wash the car….. it rained in the early hours of the Monday morning!
