Not long until our first BCC dig day (Sat 14th June) and things are starting to fall into place; we've got the rigger gloves, permanent signs and a litter picking kit on order. Maria and Helen have been talking scram and have come up with a selection of home made cakes, sandwiches and pasties that should keep all of us content; the latest line up is chocolate brownies, banana cakes, Cornish pasties and cheese and pickle/BLT rolls. Lush.
I spoke to Rodney Garton today and have arranged the delivery of the fence posts and barbed wire to fence off the derelict building at the bottom of the Allotment. Rodney has been very helpful - offering to lend us all the tools we'll need to do the job and even helping us out with some paint to mark up persistent stumps.
The weather forecast isn't looking as happy as it could but to be fair it does look like perfect building weather; light showers (with sunny spells), 15deg C and light winds.
So we're on track for a great day, if you'd like to help out just send us an e-mail at committee@BlackCanonCollective.co.uk
