Well, Summer is well and truly upon us and the gardening fairies have been busy in the Peacock’s Meadow community garden.
Over the winter months we have planted a new wildlife hedge. And community volunteers, Andy Coe and Stuart Palmer (of Fenland Spirit Services) have nobly trimmed and cut the grass and verges. This regular cutting is gradually eradicating the brambles.
Youngsters from The PORT youth club have also put in some very hard work in the garden. We have also shaped and pruned the young trees, allowing them the space to grow. The Littleport Crafters are creating a beautiful mosaic art work which will be installed later in the year. All members of the community are welcome to take part in this project. The crafters meet in the Adams Heritage Centre on the 2nd Saturday of the month, from 2 until 4 pm to work on the mosaic. Peacock’s Meadow is Littleport’s only woodland garden. It is also the only green space managed and maintained by the community.
We need more proactive volunteers for our committee. If you would like to become involved in shaping the future of the garden, fund-raising or organising community events, we’d love to hear from you! If committees aren’t your thing you can still get involved. We hold regular work parties throughout the year. All are welcome and we often have entire families getting ‘down and dirty’ with us. It’s a great way to get some fresh air and exercise, and of course, to meet new friends. You can do as little or as much as suits you. And you’ll have the satisfaction of helping to create a beautiful green space for future generations.
