… so said one of the helpers on Saturday when we set to to clear the leaves from the car park.
We expected to have a bit of a blow with our leaf blower and to add to our collection of builders’ bags.
Instead the Tremendous Ten gathered and with leaf blowers (I think I counted four or five), spades, forks, an ATV and trailer as well as some unidentifiable tools swept the premises clear of leaves, bagged them and removed them. Spades scraped the car park clear of accumulated soil, re-creating two lost parking spaces – and by lunchtime the place looked near-immaculate!
Many thanks to Theresa, who provided the refreshments (and Coffee and Crumbs who made them!) and to Paul, Chris, Louise, Ellie, Jill, Sam, Alice, John and Dave.
Of course, we’ve still got a lot of leaves on the trees… See you next Saturday?
