Floral display, weeds and beans!

A fine busy morning today and the park is looking good.  Many thanks to Julie Milne and Dave Dorward for coming down to discuss possible displays in the star next year.

The rest of us got stuck into weeding and tidying the Devlin Fountain, the Newhaven Heritage boat and the geraniums at the north wall.  Another couple of barrow loads of weeds are now slowly composting.

And Janet found time to pick quite a few broad beans in the park this morning.
